2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley, CA

  • Producer

    Macauley Vineyard

  • What we love

    A stunningly good Cabernet. Just dazzling in sheer delicious fruit, yet wonderfully structured. So smooth and velvety, flooding the mouth with layers of blackberries, black cherries, chocolate, toasty espresso, and even some tertiary notes of roasted game. The tannins are thrilling, being firm and soft at the same time. A serious crowd-pleaser.

About this Wine

Winemaker Kirk Venge is particularly proud of this phenomenal 2016 vintage, which he believes will be remembered as a classic vintage in Napa Valley. Fruit for this Cabernet was sourced primarily from Oakville, as well as Stagecoach on Atlas Peak and a few drops from Beckstoffer To Kalon – two of the most prestigious vineyards in Napa Valley. Very great now and should develop well over the next 10 years. Cheers!
