Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Warm blueberry, açaí berry and blackberry puree flavors form the core. Polished in feel, with melted licorice and sweet tobacco accents hanging on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
Blended of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notions of pure cassis and crushed plums with tobacco, sage and forest floor in the background. Medium-bodied, it has great vivacity and a plush texture with a peppery finish.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc) offers plenty of charm in its dark currant and black raspberry fruits, iron, and herbal aromas and flavors. This fleshy, rich, medium to full-bodied effort has tons of fruit, good balance, and plenty of character. It should keep for a decade or more.
Blended with 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this wine opens in a tartness of acidity as layers of dried herb, leather and black cherry develop. The texture is soft and simple, making the full-bodied concentration approachable.
