"This is the first year made of this wine with wonderful blackberries, rose leaves and blueberries. Wildly floral. Stems. Full body and round and fine tannins. Juicy and intense. Shows an eccentric style. All large oak. A new nature and personality. Drink now or hold." (JS)

"A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific value that offers loads of up-front cassis and cherry fruits, plenty of leafy herbs and graphite notes, medium-bodied richness, and a soft, supple, seamless style. It's a terrific value that has solid Cabernet character. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years." (JD)

Winery Notes:
This rugged, yet elegant wine leads with herbal expressive aromas laced with pomegranate and stony minerals. Upon tasting the wine, powdery tannins frame flavors of cherry, currant, savory spice, and red pepper. A green coffee inflected finish rounds out the overall experience.
