A beautiful clarity of fruit aromas displays ripe, opulent blueberries and black cherries, with more subtle base notes of star anise, rose petal, and vanilla. At entry, the fresh fruit dominates the palate, while the bright, juicy acidity and broad tannins follow in the mid-palate. While enough backbone and grip present themselves to clearly indicate age-worthiness, this wine shows vibrance and intensity, tempered by silkiness and viscosity, all of which combine to make the wine enjoyable even in its youth.

Celia Welch is the winemaker here. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 60% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep purple-black in color and comes strutting out of the glass with bold notions of charcuterie, garrigue, tobacco leaf, eucalypt and wood smoke with a core of crème de cassis, baked black cherries and dried mulberries with hints of oolong tea and hoisin. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated with a firm frame of ripe, fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long with loads of layers. 125 cases produced.
