2016 Aperture Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Quick Overview

Winemaker Notes- "The year 2016 was a good one for grapes in the northern part of Sonoma County. Our cooler vineyard sites had the unique advantage of a long and moderate growing season. With this mellow, even weather, our fruit ripened gently. The result: deep flavors with complex, integrated tannins, and lively characteristics that make this vintage one of our best. Four hillside Cabernet vineyard sites, all with mineral-rich volcanic soils, are always the first focus of this blend. In 2016, our Merlot harvest was particularly incredible, yielding stunning acidity with full and silky tannins. It was a perfect partner to the vivid fruit profile of our Alexander Valley Cabernet vineyards. This year's blend of the two achieves an uncommon, sophisticated balance."

2016 Aperture Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Never mind the six million album covers around the world that feature Andy Katz’s photographs, or his dozen books of gorgeous photos that grace countless coffee tables around the country, or the many awards on his mantel earned from five decades of work around the world. It was all an excuse. An excuse to drink world class wine. To learn what it takes to make world class wine. And to spend time with his young son Jesse. Andy brought Jesse to the the most famous vineyards on earth, from the heart of Burgundy to the hills of Tuscany. He may not have admitted it at the time, but Andy’s gambit worked. Barely a decade later, Jesse is now one of the most exciting — and accomplished — winemakers in the world, recently gracing the cover of Wine Enthusiast as a rising young star who is doing nothing less than “changing the way the world drinks.” The son of a man who, through his photographs, changes the way the world sees wine. It’s a perfect combination. Jesse supplies the grapes, Andy supplies the images. And together they make wines worthy of their travels. Aperture. World class wines. Katz and Katz. A world class pairing.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 92-94

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: A barrel sample containing a 5% splash of Merlot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Revival has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with subtle notes of fresh blackcurrant, black cherries and black raspberries with touches of new leather, dried Provence herbs and cedar chest. Full-bodied, concentrated and structured with a solid frame of chewy tannins, it gives a generous amount of black berry and savory flavors, finishing with an herbal lift.
