2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Heather Hill Vineyard

The 2016 Cabernet opens with an expressive nose, suggestive of clove, raspberry tobacco and cocoa. Heather Hill’s unmistakable marks of redcurrant, desert sage and rosemary are brilliantly intertwined with ripe boysenberry and black tea in textured layers which linger on. This is a beautiful wine to enjoy now and for years to come.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"Bright ruby. At once darker and more subdued on the nose than the 2015 version, which I retasted next to this wine; aromas of cassis, black cherry, blackberry, menthol and crushed-rock are accented by notes of violet and bitter chocolate. Tight-grained and vibrant on the palate; a real high-wire act of pungent dark berries, sweet dusty spices and floral high notes. More vertical and less broad than the 2015 version but wonderfully precise and palate-straining, finishing with serious noble tannins and subtle treble notes. Has the structure for a slow and graceful development in bottle. This may be even more intense than the 2015: I'd love to have the chance to taste these two wines side by side in seven or eight years. If anything, this wine tightened up with air." Stephen Tanzer, 94+ pts.
