Melka mined a fresh vein of elegance from Howell Mountain with this vintage. The 2016 TERES pirouettes from the glass with wild blackberry, violets and savory garrigue. The full-body is framed in fine-grained tannins for a seamless, refined mouthfeel that begs for another sip. The idyllic ADAMVS property, with its mosaic of vineyard sites, offers up the perfect terroir for Melka to work his signature magic.
Leading off the 2016s and fresher and slightly more elegant than the 2015, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon TERES offers a complex perfume of flowery camphor, violets, and blue fruits as well as a medium to full-bodied, refined, seamless mouthfeel that just begs to be drunk. From 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 70% new French oak, it can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years.
