Addendum Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Only 200 cases were made of this lovely Cabernet.
And judging by the name, we think this is the next natural addition to your collection.
100% Cabernet from the heralded 2016 vintage with the majority of the fruit being sourced from the famed Stagecoach Vineyard! This is a simply intoxicating wine that is an absolute must for those seeking Napa Valley perfection in the glass.
Dense garnet with a purple core, expressive aromas of creme de cassis, pencil shavings, wet tobacco, wild blueberries, dark chocolate, dried violets, blackberry cobbler and crushed minerals bound out of the glass with ease. A power-packed palate of black fruits, figs, chocolate-covered cherries, creme brulee, and spiced mocha, all framed by exquisitely fine tannins that reinforce the structure and concentration of this offering.
Aged for 26 months in French oak, the wine is round and polished, with zero sharp edges and a stunning presence on the palate. You can taste Stagecoach Vineyard with every sip, and the remainder of the fruit comes from a few top sites in Rutherford, adding a dusty depth to the wine that adds nuance and personality.
Did we mention it's 2016?!?!? One of the best vintages Napa Valley has seen in quite some time, there’s tremendous energy and depth in this wine, and the vintage showcases true greatness with time in the glass. You could put this beauty down for a few years if you so choose as well, but we completely understand if you want to pop it right now!
94 Points from Jeb and 93+ from Parker showcase we mean business here, there’s no reason not to back up the truck and load up.
A true must add to your Cab repertoire.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley checks in as 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent over two years in 45% new French oak. Its ruby/purple color is followed by gorgeous notes of crème de cassis, graphite, lead pencil, spice, and ripe tobacco. Finesse-oriented, incredibly elegant, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, it's a brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon that shines for its elegance and purity.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon features wonderfully pure notes of ripe blackcurrants, wild blueberries and black cherry compote with touches of cedar chest, candied violets, pencil lead and dark chocolate. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with concentrated black fruits, framed by exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with impressive length and loads of black berry layers.
Intense, with dark loam and fig notes leading off, working in unison as they drive through, picking up tobacco, black currant, sage and roasted juniper accents along the way. Muscular style.
