More dark currants, blackberries, spring flowers, dark chocolate, and tobacco notes dominated the nose of the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon QUINTVS and it’s a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced wine that shows the pure, classic style of the 2016 vintage. All Cabernet brought up in 75% new French oak, it has subtle oak, a beautiful mid-palate, silky tannins, and a great, great finish. It has shut down slightly over the past year and needs 4-5 years of bottle age, but it’s a stunning wine.
