Lush and inviting, with cassis, creamed plum and boysenberry puree flavors gliding through on a very polished structure, while anise, mocha and tobacco accents check in on the finish. A seductive style. Drink now...

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged for 19 months in 30% new French oak. The core of the fruit comes from the Coombsville estate blended with some mountain and valley floor fruit from elsewhere. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a beautiful core of ripe blackcurrants, blackberries and lavender with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead and camphor plus a waft of tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a nice, firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and well-played freshness delivering a long, vibrant finish. - LPB

This is a tremendous value for the quality—a youthful tightly wound wine that's still thick and tannic, with a heavy thread of leather, gunpowder and oak. Savory and substantial, it has secondary seasonings of sage and cedar that contrast well against black currant and cherry.

The nose is laced with ripe blackberries and vanilla tinged with notes of cedar and earth. The palate is juicy and accessible for a young cabernet and echoes closely the nose. Ripe dark fruit is balanced with a nice line of acidity. The fine grained, round tannins make for a pleasurable drinking experience now, but it will gain more balance with a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2019-2030
