2016 is a Bordeaux blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. The wine was aged in 50% new French and American oak for 22-months before bottling. Distinctive aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, mountain flora and subtle earth precede a firm, lush palate with intense blueberry, blackberry notes and a touch of flint. The palate is medium-bodied, yet it has an incredible intensity with no heaviness.
One should expect this vintage to live for many decades.
