2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is a serious expression of Napa Valley. It is meant to show classic dark, rich, blackberry and red cherry notes that are the signature of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Simultaneously, it does not shy away from secondary savory, peppercorn characters that also highlight the signature of the varietal. On the nose this wine has notes of blackberries, leather, cedar, peppercorn, and a touch of vanilla. On the palate, it is rich and racy with dark plum fruit and strawberries that are supported by toasted nuts and cocoa powder. Built to age at least 10 years, it is also pleasing now.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2016 vintage was a textbook season for the Napa Valley. We saw a return to average winter rainfall with steady rain all winter. Budbreak happened slightly earlier and set was solid. As summer approaced we saw the return of Napa Valley fog that kept the nighttime temperatures cool allowing the mid-day temperatures to rise for perfect grape ripening weather.

Please note, this wine is not eligible for New Jersey shipping until January 1, 2019.
