Our 2016 Estate Red opens with bold and intense aromas of blackberry, anise, tobacco leaf and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and savory, with layered flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and leather with oak influences of vanilla and toast. Though firm, the tannins are rounded by a balanced acidity and a long and smooth finish. Though appealing in its youth, this wine will also age beautifully over the next 15 years.

The 2016 Estate Red is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot. Deep ruby-purple, it's scented of pencil lead, cedar, cassis, maraschino cherry, cigar box and chocolate with touches of cardamom and dried spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied and lushly fruited, with a firm frame of very ripe, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long. 4,998 cases produced.

This blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot is concentrated and rich. The full-bodied palate is built by thick tannins, with flavors of earthy dried herb and blackberry jam that linger on the finish.

Offers a burst of plum and black cherry compote flavors, backed by licorice notes and a hint of blueberry cobbler. Maintains an ebullient profile through the polished, moderately toasted and accessible finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2022.
