    A barrel sample blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays intense notes of crushed red and black currants, black berries and black raspberries with touches of dried Mediterranean herbs and damp soil plus a waft of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied with a beautifully taut yet ripe, grainy texture and superb freshness, it has loads of earth and mineral layers, finishing long. 220 cases are expected to be made. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

  • Description


    Bottled in September of this year, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate checks in as 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc brought up in French oak. Its inky purple color is followed by classic notes of blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, and hints of crushed rock. Deep, seamless, ultra-pure, and incredibly classic on the palate, it's another brilliant, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Morgan Maureze. It’s slightly more reserved than the 2015 (which is to be expected as the vintages are dramatically different) and is going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age. 98+ points. -Jeb Dunnuck
