We flipped for this gorgeous Cabernet’s vibrant, expressive, earthy character, with notes of chocolate, roses, and candied plum. The Wine Advocate loved its “deep garnet-purple color and intense redcurrants, black raspberries, cassis, warm plums and kirsch with hints of violets, tobacco, forest floor and wild sage. The palate is full, firm, grainy and concentrated, finishing long and perfumed.” Galloni dug its “terrific depth and textural richness. Black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, dark spice and menthol flesh out in this super-expressive, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon.”

Vinous

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has turned out beautifully. Dark, supple and generous on the palate, the 2016 possesses terrific depth and textural richness. Black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, dark spice and menthol flesh out in this super-expressive, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 can be enjoyed young or cellared for a number of years. Dollops of Cabernet Sauvignon from Georges III and Merlot from Oak Knoll round out the blend. Readers should note that this wine no longer carries the "Estate" designation, as it once did.
