2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Peterson Family Vineyard | Calistoga

Intense dark fruit aromas of black cherry and black currant indicate the ripeness and purity of this beautiful Cabernet. The structural framework is sturdy, while tannin grips very gently, carrying the fruit flavors with a trace of vanilla into a long, graceful finish. –  Bob Foley, Winemaker

The 100% varietal 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard comes from a site in Calistoga and was raised in 50% new French oak. It offers impressive amounts of cassis and blueberry fruits intermixed with lots of sappy herbs, incense, and California bay leaf-like nuances. Full-bodied, rockingly concentrated and powerful, yet still elegant and seamless. It’s a seriously good Napa Cabernet that might just be one of the best at the under 100-dollar price point. –  JEB DUNNUCK | January 31, 2019 – 96+ points
