“Ultra-velvety and dense dark fruit notes on the captivating nose. Ultra-creamy vanilla and dark cocoa shine on the front palate, accompanied by notes of black currant and plum building up the supple tannins to a superb start. Black cherry, cassis and fresh blackberry yield to a generous, sultry and seamless finish that includes hints of tobacco, dark chocolate, walnuts and espresso. Typical of the unanimously acclaimed 2016 Napa Cabernet vintage, this impressive release will thrill now (decanting recommended prior to 2024) and anytime for the next decade.” - California Wine Advisors
