Tasting Notes

Deep dark purple color. Aromas of dark bing cherries, black currents, and hints of leather, cedar and vanilla. The wine is rich, full-bodied and has tart cherry and ripe plum fruit flavors with licorice undertones. The Cabernet has chewy but rounded and smooth tannins and finishes with warm lingering toasty notes.

The Vintage

Drought conditions continued for the 2016 vintage and yields were naturally low to downright tiny! Growing conditions were steady and provided a low yielding, quality driven crop. The resulting wines have good concentration and show excellent varietal character.
