Possessing a deep magenta core with a dark ruby edge, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon emanates with aromas of brown baking spices from the 50% new French oak, followed by a dusty profile of dark red fruits with hints of dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is similar to a young Bordeaux from a warm vintage, with fleshy fruit and firm tannins that grip the gumline. The wine displays a long, complex finish that should last past its 15th birthday. Be sure to have some roasted meats on hand to enjoy with this lovely bottle. Give it a try. Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has to shake off a bit of reduction, but eventually offers plenty of black fruit, pressed violets and light marine/seaweed aromas. The medium-bodied palate delivers fine-grained tannins and a mixture of red and black fruit laced with tobacco and white pepper, leading to an elegant and quite persistent finish. There’s some quality winemaking on show here. Neal Martin, Vinous
