Cabernet Grgich Hills Estate Napa 2016Regular price $68.99
Deep red in the glass, this sultry wine shows dark berry fruit on the nose followed by black currant, plum, with an undertone of lavender and allspice. Rich and velvety on the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits full and smooth tannins, yet maintains a youthfulness. Plum and pluot re-emerge on the palate carried by undertones of rhubarb and hints of nutmeg. Great aging potential.
The string of near perfect vintages continued for the fifth year in 2016, with an early bud break and flowering followed by sunny days and relatively mild temperatures throughout the growing season. We were able to have almost all our grapes safely in the cellar before the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October fourteenth.
