Our 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is, as always, a contrast of elevations including extraordinary vineyards from Saint Helena, Yountville, and Pritchard Hill. Aromas of ripe briar fruits, bay leaf, and toffee lead into flavors of blackberry preserves, unsweetened cocoa, and spiced vanilla. Consistent with previous vintages, this bottling offers a broad optimal drinking-window afforded by an exceptional balance between its polished structure, buoyant acidity, and a blissful fruit purity.

One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon (coming from vineyards in St. Helena, Pritchard Hill and Yountville), aged 20 months in 65% new French oak, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a little closed to begin, soon giving way to notions of blackcurrant cordial, plum preserves and blackberry compote with wafts of mocha, licorice and fertile loam plus hints of cedar chest, lavender and unsmoked tobacco. It's very big, rich and full in the mouth and chock-full of taut black fruit and earthy layers, supported by ripe, grainy tannins, finishing with epic length. 450 cases produced.
