This is the newest release from Vineyard 29 CRU. The 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.
