2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon marks my third vintage in this portfolio of beautiful wines, and likely one of our proudest efforts to date. As it often takes a few years to truly learn a vineyard, Wes and I took the opportunity the perfect growing conditions in 2016 offered and craft a beautiful expression of pure Cabernet Sauvignon from the family estate. The wine shows a more savory focus, with notes of Chinese five spice, bittersweet chocolate ganache, white pepper and candied currants. Having barrel fermented nearly 30% of the fruit for this wine, the mid-palate and body are seamless and finely polished, maintaining the acid and tannin tension one would hope for and expect from a mountain estate. This wine will show beautiful upon release with time in the decanter, and will age gracefully for many years to come!
