Our 2016 Cru Cabernet Sauvignon's gorgeous aromatic profile opens with chocolate-covered blueberries and warm raspberry cobbler. Juicy blue and black fruits are joined by notes of violets and mocha as they spread across the palate, where great acidity and weight extend well into the back palate, finishing with fine-grained, silky tannin texture and a farewell kiss of cocoa.

Starting with 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru, which is a blend of multiple sites, it offers a saturated purple color as well as a juicy, soft, delicious style in its darker, bluer fruits and leafy herbs. It has terrific purity and I suspect it's ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, and 2% Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in 50% new French oak.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru has a deep purple-black color and features a very pretty perfume of roses and violets over a core of warm cassis and blueberry pie plus wafts of mossy bark and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with perfumed, juicy black fruits, supported by a plush frame and finishing with a peppery kick.

Juicy and direct, with a good beam of raspberry and cherry preserve flavors that pick up singed vanilla and tobacco notes along the way. Drink now through 2022.
