The 2016 Saffredi brings full-throttled intensity in a very well-balanced wine. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (10%) spends 18 months in mostly new oak. This vintage is compact, firm and precise, with lovely floral aromas on the bouquet in front of blackberry and plum. Long oak toasting gives the wine tasty notes of spice and cinnamon and rounds the bouquet off nicely. The mouthfeel is soft and velvety. This is a complex, integrated and absolutely beautiful wine.

This red is dark and brooding, revealing plum, blueberry, tar, iron and leafy underbrush flavors. Intense and burly, yet persistent, refusing to quit on the firm finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 3,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.
