Wine Advocate

One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon from the Black Sears vineyard on Howell Mountain aged 20 months in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Sears Vineyard is deep garnet-purple colored and displays scents of cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, black plums and camphor with touches of tar, garrigue, cigar box and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers fantastic freshness and a firm, grainy texture to support the youthful black fruit, finishing long with some mineral notes coming through. 121 cases produced to be released in October 2019.
