Addax 2016 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon stains the glass with inky purple blackberries, giving up notions of cherries, cassis, and plum with asphalt and Italian leather. Full bodied yet focused in the mouth, it has a satisfying core of dark fruit and earthy layers with seductive tannins and a seemingly never-ending finish. Only a few barrels produced. Don’t miss out on this rising star from 100 point wine maker, Russell Bevan.
Addax is a project from two wine-loving buddies, Brian Kearney and Josh Peeples, and they chose Russell Bevan to be their winemaker. This is a brand to watch, with many more great wines in the pipeline! It’s hard to believe that this little winery is already in their 10th vintage, and just now starting to creep into the forward radar of the press and the public.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard is deep garnet-purple colored with crème de cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and scorched earth aromas with hints of tar and black pepper. The palate is big, rich and full with firm, grainy tannins and loads of earthy nuances, finishing on a savory note
