The 2016 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon is a combination of 8% Merlot with the remainder Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The wine was entirely aged in French oak (85% new) for twenty two months prior to bottling. The aromatics really impress with nuances of sandalwood and Asian spices with black tea and blackberry compote that all combine marvelously on the nose. The palate has beautiful freshness and poise, with a great sense of balance as flavors of crème de cassis, mocha, tear, leather and shades of blackberry pie all mlinger through the finish. While this is fantastic now, it should only continue to become more compelling over time.
