The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Rhône varieties aged in 37% new French oak for 20 months. Deep purple-black in color, it opens with crushed blueberries, black cherries and cassis with touches of yeast extract, beef dripping, bay leaves and cedar with a waft of lilacs. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant in the mouth, the palate reveals fantastic energy with a firm, grainy frame and long, mineral-laced finish.

This is very melted and round with a linear line of acidity running through it at the same time. Medium to full body and fine tannins. Bright and focused. Drink or hold.

Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is outstanding and has the classic, pure style of the vintage front and center. Revealing a saturated purple color as well as lots of blue fruits, chocolate, spring flower, and damp earth characteristics, it’s medium to full-bodied, has fine tannins, and outstanding length. This cuvée is 96% Cabernet and 4% Merlot, aged 20 months in 37% new French oak.
