Hailing from one of the best under the radar Cabernet Sauvignon AVA’s, Au Sommet has produced a beauty. Plum, blueberry, clove and violets on the nose -- full-bodied, with bold cassis, pencil lead and espresso. Heidi Barrett of Screaming Eagle fame once again shows why she’s the Queen of the Mountains. Limited quantities -- grab this before it’s gone.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the Au Sommet 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up exuberant crushed blackcurrants, warm plums, wild blueberries and cloves with suggestions of violets, tilled black soil, tar, chargrill and cedar chest with a waft of unsmoked cigars. The palate is full-bodied, firm, grainy and refreshing with incredible intensity, finishing very long and earthy.
