The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, yet powerful wine that reveals delicate aromas of black licorice, toasty vanilla from the oak, and cassis. The aromatic aspect leads into a full-bodied, layered palate showcasing violets, sweet tobacco, and black currants. This vintage does have some medium tannins up front, but in fact finishes pleasantly soft. This vintage should be a wine to age in your cellar for a good while. Please pair with a high fat food or something in the umami category of taste. Some excellent ideas for example would be a Charred Gruyere Burger with Shitaki Mushrooms or a Marinated Ribeye Steak. Best from 2019 to 2032. Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
