Presenting an opaque purple color and expressive aromas of red currant, ripe blackberry, and mocha, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals the complexity and diversity of the famed region. Layers of fresh blueberry, dried leaf, and cardamom spice emerge on the palate alongside graphite and notes of minerality. Polished tannins and a round mouthfeel evolve into a long, energetic finish.

A ripe, polished and forward style, with a beam of plum and cassis notes, laced with singed vanilla details. Reveals a licorice echo through the finish. Drink now through 2024.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is fresh, nuanced and delicate. Ripe red berry, tobacco, mint and cedar add nuance to this supple, floral Cabernet. Drink it over the next few years.

Dense, earthy and forested, this red offers compressed condensed flavors of dark cherry cola and blood orange. Intensely rich, ripe and fruity, it's well integrated in oak and tannin.
