Jeb Dunnuck Review
Stunning stuff, and possibly the finest vintage to date for this wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes all from the estate on Red Mountain and is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc brought up all in new French oak. Gorgeous notes of creme de cassis, toasted spices, white flowers, and subtle oak all emerge from this super-rich, concentrated, full-bodied Cabernet that stays perfectly balanced and elegant. It has plenty of upfront appeal and shows a soft, sexy profile, yet it has ample tannins, remarkable purity, and a great finish, all promising 20+ years of longevity. Hats off to the team for this killer wine. Drink 2020-2042.
This Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of black cherry, berry and dark chocolate that fuse with smooth notes of vanilla and spice. Rich and balanced on the palate, this wine finishes with long lingering flavors of cocoa, black fruits and anise.
