VinoUS Media Review
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is every bit as impressive as it was from barrel. Ample, full-bodied and yet classically medium-bodied in feel, the Reserve is tremendous. All the elements are in balance. Soft contours and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The single-parcel Cabernets are undoubtedly flashier, but for quality and price, it is very hard to top the Reserve. (Antonio Galloni)
Wine Enthusiast Review
A 100% varietal, estate wine given nearly two years in French oak, much of it new, this wine is powerful, sultry and smooth, with succulent red fruit and fig at its fore. Tobacco, forest and cedar give it a savory, complementary complexity that works well to make it a cohesive wine. This will benefit from time in the bottle; enjoy best 20212026.
Wine Tasting Notes
Sourced entirely from the gravely sections of our estate, the 2016 Reserve Cabernet showcases what stunning flavors can come from our Rutherford vineyards. The aromatics burst from the glass with tremendous black current and cassis notes, as well as highlights of licorice, forest floor and black tea. Creamy, rich, and generous, this wine shows essences of plum, clove and cigar box which marry well with hints of dried herbs, licorice and tarragon. The compelling finish unfolds with breadth and a lovely tension between the wine's mouthwatering acidity and pleasing tannins.
