2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Since 1992, we have sought out California's most unique old vine vineyard to craft wines with distinct character and deep, inviting flavors. The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception to this mission. Sourcing fruit from heritage vineyards on Atlas Peak and within Calistoga, we're quite excited about how our 2016 vintage has evolved since bottling. Within this wine, you'll experience everything a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet has to offer along with the unique style and twist on the typical that we're known for.
Nose: Lush aromas of dark fruit, leather, black currants, and molasses intertwined with a fresh herbaceous earthiness.
Palate: Hints of brown sugar/molasses-based BBQ sauce flavors –– it’s a little spicy and a little sweet giving us thoughts of peppercorns, black tea, molé sauces, maple syrup, and cocoa nibs. A graceful landing across the tongue with a bright minerality that shines through this masculine wine. This wine evolves with each sip you take as you experience great concentration, medium tannins, and a balanced, big finish.
Pairings: Camembert cheese, roasted lamb with mint, blackberry, or raspberry desserts. And, of course, the Cabernet staple: a good ribeye steak.
