About the Wine:
96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Made of 100% Cabernet aged 21 months in 93% new French oak, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1 comes bounding out of the glass with energetic notes of crushed blueberries, cassis and black cherry compote with hints of lilacs, baking spices, cedar chest and potpourri. Full-bodied and wonderfully velvety in the mouth, it delivers mouth-filling perfumed black fruit and has a compelling herbal lift to the long finish.
95 points James Suckling
A balanced and polished red with plums, blue fruit and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied yet refined and focused. Finesse. Savory and juicy. Umami. Shows wonderful potential. Barrel Sample: 94-9
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
