The 2016 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and complex with aromas of currants, violets, and dusty cocoa powder. Generous dark fruit flavors dominate the palate and meld with hints of graphite. The tannins are structured but have a soft edge and the wine finishes with a dark chocolate note. The tannin structure, rich dark fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine's ability to age. Enjoy with grilled paprika-marinated skirt steak or tomato braised pork over pasta (Sugo di Maiale).

A barrel sample, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon S. L. V. is deep purple-black and just a little reduced at this youthful stage, offering glimpses at crushed blackberries, mulberries and warm cassis notes plus hints of tilled soil, scorched earth, tar and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals incredibly provocative and complex layers of black fruits and earthy notions, supported by a rock-solid, grainy texture and plenty of freshness, finishing with great length and depth.

Graphite, flint and toasted oak accent a core of brawny, concentrated black fruit in this estate red. Clove, black currant, cigar box and firm, structured tannins contribute to the classic nature of this well-made wine. Enjoy 2026-2031.

Features a well-focused beam of red and black currant coulis running through, laced with light savory, anise and singed cedar notes. Everything pulls together through the finish, showing a sense of finesse to match the power. Drink now through 2035. 2,550 cases made.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. captures all the darkness and mineral-infused intensity that is so typical of this historic vineyard. Black cherry, lavender, plum, violet, spice and menthol all fill out the wine's creamy yet mid-weight frame. Deep and plush, but never heavy, the 2016 has a lot to recommend it.
