2016 Gandona 'Encosta' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$99.95

Aromatic & expressive with ripe blueberries, blackberry compote, violets, and cocoa nib taking center stage, underlain by notes of sweet earth, crushed rocks, and cigar box. The 2016 Gandona exudes power and finesse while still being light on its feet. The lengthy, mineral finish is a grand finale that is deserving of a standing ovation.

There's lots to like here, from the steeped black currant and blackberry fruit flavors to the notes of licorice snap and bramble, all framed by singed alder accents. Displays ample juicy energy through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030.
