This 2016 exhibits a wonderful combination of plums, violets, cassis, and “Pauillac graphite” aromas. This wine is concentrated and powerful with delicious flavors of currents, cherries, and assorted spices. The dynamic structure of this Red Mountain Estate Cabernet showcases ripe tannins, mouthwatering acidity and light touches of toasty oaks notes. One of my best and most dynamic UV Cabs yet, this wine could live forever.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate- (93-96 points) Barrel Sample
" The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is even better and is a smoking effort. Crème de cassis, graphite, liquid violets, and exotic spice notes all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, fresh, focused style. With building tannin yet beautiful length, it's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for two decades." Jeb Dunnuck
