Black cherry, blueberry and vanilla are the first aromas emanating from the glass of this 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine reveals itself in layers of raspberry, clove, licorice and pepper. The palate mirrors the nose with its fruit forward style nuanced by the complex spice. This Cabernet is very full on the palate, and has well-rounded and full tannins. The soft acidity and silky voluptuous finish let the wine’s finish linger for quite some time. This wine is great now, but should mature well for years to come.
