Jeb Dunnuck

Moving to the Cabernet Sauvignon releases, the 2016 Le Petit Vice is the second wine of the estate and spent 20 months in 50% new French oak. Made mostly from declassified fruit, yet also with some purchased fruit, it certainly delivers the goods and shows the quality of this estate. Blackberries, plums, cedary herb, and scorched earth characteristics all flow to a layered, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has remarkable elegance and purity. It’s one hell of a second wine and there are 500 cases produced
