Each year, Le Petit Vice continues to show the extraordinary pedigree of its vineyard sources. Forthright aromas of blueberry, plum, and vanilla bean lead to a palate brimming with elegant energy and reminiscent of sophisticated Bordeaux-like hallmarks: tobacco and cedar framing a satisfying core of black fruits and spiced oak. The 2016 offering is a delicious compendium of what Vice Versa Cabernet Sauvignon is about.

Moving to the Cabernet Sauvignon releases, the 2016 Le Petit Vice is the second wine of the estate and spent 20 months in 50% new French oak. Made mostly from declassified fruit, yet also with some purchased fruit, it certainly delivers the goods and shows the quality of this estate. Blackberries, plums, cedary herb, and scorched earth characteristics all flow to a layered, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has remarkable elegance and purity.

This is a new second wine meant as a means for consumers to discover the Vice Versa brand. Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, blending fruit from St. Helena, Pritchard Hill and Yountville and aged 20 months in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Petit Vice is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with expressive crème de cassis, preserved plums and blueberry tart with hints of Chinese five spice, sandalwood, pencil lead and menthol plus a waft of coffee beans. It's full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth with wonderfully plush yet firm tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and spicy.
