The 2016 Pirouette is made by Philippe Melka and it’s a total blockbuster based on 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and the palate Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec that was fermented in barrel and aged 22 months in 75% new oak. Crème de cassis, blackberries, toasted spices, cedar, and forest floor notes all emerge from this deep, rich, opulent red that has sweet tannins, a thrilling texture, no hard edges, and a monster finish. This is another best-to-date from this estate and it’s an awesome wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon comprises 68% of this wine, with the rest Merlot (15%), Petit Verdot (8%), Cabernet Franc (6%) and Malbec (3%). Aromas of burnt coffee, leaf, apple and spice lead to chocolatey flavors. Coffee notes linger on the warm finish. The tannins bring a grainy feel, needing some time to stretch out. Best after 2023.
