The 2016 Cabernet was a monster on release: big, bold and well-structured, it needed some time to soften and come into its own... and it surely did. Complex aromas of ripe blackberries and firm tannins are expressive on the palate. It is ready to drink now or will reward further aging. This wine delivers amazing value given its pedigree and quality of fruit.
Wine & Spirits
Cameron Parry found his cabernet vines ripened their fruit in 2016 at Brix levels that were lower than usual, sustaining acidity in the grapes. They produced a young and luscious Oakville cabernet, the wine integrating oak and fruit tannins in a way that supercharges its flavors. Rather than weighing the wine down, the structure empowers it, presenting plummy blue fruit, scents of cassis and fruity-umami notes of mushrooms that last, gracious, gentle and refined.
