Hearst Ranch Bunkhouse Cabernet Sauvigon 2016

SKU 852842091018


Appearance: A vibrant and dense ruby color in the glass. Aroma: The nose shows pure Cabernet Sauvignon varietal notes of iron shavings and graphite with blackcurrant. There is a touch of medium toasted oak present when first opened that graciously recedes to the background after a bit of air. Flavor: The 2016 exhibits a beautiful level of ripeness, a judicious balance of hangtime and restraint. The wine is plush and finely textured on the palate. The limestone laden soil yields wonderfully chalky tannins that carry the wine from the mid-palate, graciously through the lingering finish. There is sufficient acidity to provide balance throughout. Pairings: It has the confidence to accompany traditional red wine food pairings yet the social graces to be enjoyed by itself.

Wine EnthusiastA refreshing approach to the grape, this bottling offers red currant and black plum alongside an earthy elegance of gravel and wood on the nose. It's well balanced on the palate, with flavors of ripe red fruit, wood spice, dried herb and tobacco.
