Crushed dark fruit with licorice and black olives on the nose. Full-bodied and very lush yet reserved and melted in the palate. Fine tannins. Spreads out across the palate in a subtle way. Drink after 2020.

The vineyard is dotted with big rocks, and the soil is roja (very red). This wine comes from the upper steep terraces of the vineyard, directly below Dalla Valle. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Hillside features red, black and blue fruits with floral and earthy nuances plus pencil shavings and a meaty/savory undercurrent. The palate is full-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with loads of earth and mineral layers. 447 cases produced.- LPB collapse

Poorer soils on this part of the property yield small berries an wine with a distinctly darker profile vis-à-vis the straight Tierra Roja Cabernet. Inky, plush and voluptuous, with terrific energy backing up the fruit, the 2016 is positively stellar. Don't miss it. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

This beauty has a more perfumed, classic style that carries ample crème de cassis, graphite, violets, leafy herbs, tobacco, and some savory, herbal, forest floor notes. Medium to full-bodied, silky, pure, and elegant, it’s another seamless wine from this team. collapse
