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.
