This wine opens with concentrated aromas expressing characteristics of the famed Rutherford Dust. Flavors of red fruit along with blackberry, black currant, and elderberry play into the foreground, with dense tannins enveloping the palate. The midpalate offers lingering undertones of dried herbs, graphite, and citrus that lead to a savory finish of bittersweet chocolate and tobacco.

Blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-black color and nose of black and red berries, earth and herbs with savory hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, chewy and lively.

A very assertive, powerful and alluringly fresh nose with lively boysenberry and blackberry aromas, leading to a palate that offers a succulent core of fresh, rich and deep-set fruit flavors. Superb depth and richness here.
