Aperture Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
The year 2016 was an excellent one for grapes in the northern
part of Sonoma County. Our cooler vineyard sites had the unique advantage of a
long and moderate growing season. With this mellow, even weather, our fruit
ripened gently. The result: deep flavors with complex, integrated tannins, and
lively characteristics that make this vintage one of our best.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon springs forth from the glass with vibrant black cherries, cassis and warm plums scents, backed up by hints of spice box, cedar chest, dark chocolate and tilled soil. Full-bodied and decadently fruited in the mouth, it has a taut line of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness lifting the opulent fruit to a long finish. 2,800 cases produced
Wine EnthusiastSoft and silky with a backbone of lush velvety texture, this is an impressively delicious wine, tasting of blueberry mocha. With firm integrated tannins and restrained oak, it offers quiet power that persists in layers of flavor and complexity.
