Reflecting the outstanding vintage, the captivating nose of this wine shows dark and brooding aromas of cassis, plum and blackberry, touched by exotic notes of lavender, anise, pencil lead and leather. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe black fruits are wrapped around a firm structure of fine-grained tannins, minerality and beautiful freshness that carry on into the long, satisfying finish. Per winemakers Françoise Peschon and Nigel Kinsman: "The consistency of an exceptional vintage is expressed in the purity, length and fineness of this wine - it is deep and powerful, yet perfectly integrated, seamless from approach to finish, full of plush flavor from ripe fruit, ending with silky tannins and graphite that linger on the palate."

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot and was bottled in August 2018. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts out of the glass with exotic spice notes of star anise, fenugreek and cumin seed over a core of blackberry pie, wild blueberries and warm cassis with hints of kirsch, cigar box and mocha plus a waft of smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with vibrant black, blue and red fruits plus tons of spicy sparks, framed by wonderfully ripe, fine-grained tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Richly layered, with ripe and caressing cassis, plum preserves, boysenberry reduction and açaí berry fruit flavors. There's a chocolate backdrop and alluring toast notes throughout, with a subtle graphite edge on the very fine-grained finish to keep this red honest. A beautiful display of fruit and very Oakville in style. Drink now through 2035. 1,240 cases made.
