Breathtaking. Exceptional integration of super-ripe blackberries and the very finest oak. The tannins build up beautifully, wave upon wave as the wine flows across the palate. Then the wave breaks on your palate and shoots way out at the finish so that you wonder where it will end and normal life begins again.

As with the 2015, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve shows the vintage beauty and is more pure, classic, and elegant. Notes of creme de cassis, graphite, lead pencil shavings, and freshly crushed rocks give way to a medium to full-bodied, seamless Cabernet with remarkable fruit purity and impeccable balance. Made from 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot aged in 83% new French oak, it's more reserved and backward than the 2015 and will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.
