“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and the rest Malbec that was brought up in 85% new French oak. This black-fruited beauty has tons of blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and hints of violets. It opens up beautifully with time in the glass, has beautiful purity and elegance, silky tannins, and a great finish. Elegant and seamless as well as concentrated, this attractive Cabernet will keep for 20-25 years. 95 points.” –Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, Jan. 2019.
