2016 AXR Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$249.00

AXR’s 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, made by the delightfully irreverent Jean Hoefliger, is their top wine, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from three great Vineyards: Denali (above Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford), Sleeping Lady in Yountville, and of course the legendary Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard in Oakville. It’s simply incredible, the kind of wine we could see getting a perfect score in coming months.

The winery describes a “Beautiful deep nose with touches of cedar, black currant, pine, cookie dough, tobacco, brown sugar, black pepper and paprika.” This wine is so supple, ripe, and fine, with beautiful aromas of violets, tiramisu, anise, and black raisin. This is undoubtedly a fifty-year wine. Why wait for the monster score? Lay in a six-pack of this skyscraper today!
