2016 cade Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Winemaker Notes:
The 2016 vintage was ideal with warm and dry growing conditions through-out the season. Harvest started on September 19th and finished on the 29th, a relatively short span for valley floor fruit. The resulting wine has beautiful aromas of fresh blackberry, blueberry pie, vanilla extract, clove, white pepper, rose petal, and cinnamon. The wine has velvety tannins and a round, silky texture. On the palate are flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cocoa powder, graham cracker, anise, and chocolate. The 2016 vintage has an elegance and roundness to it which makes it ideal for drinking now, or in 5-7 years with proper cellaring.
