JEB DUNNUCK RATING: 93
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: Leading off the Cabernet releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a broad, sexy, seamless effort that has lots of classic dark fruits and floral notes, medium to full body, light tannins, and rock star purity of fruit. As Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, this is first class value that delivers true Cabernet flare. Drink it over the coming 8-10 years.
JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 93
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW:

There’s a depth and power to this Napa cabernet with blueberry, blackberry and currant character. Full body, racy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or two to soften. Drink in 2020. Available in February 2019.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 90
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW:

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 18 months in 70% new French oak. It has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of warm cassis, freshly crushed black berries, wild blueberries and cedar chest with hints of pencil lead, new leather, Marmite toast and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chock-full of juicy black fruit, it has a great line of freshness and firm grainy tannins paving the finish.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 94
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW:

Youthful, this wine is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Together, they form a core of earthy cedar, clove and pencil shavings, with a bite of thick tannin taking on a leathery texture. Dark cherry, black currant and dark chocolate melt on the palate into a velvety whole. Editors’ Choice.
