NVWE Notes: True to its highly-touted vintage, this is a gorgeous Cabernet: immediately forthcoming and packed with focused sweet-natured fruit. The nose surges-out as a lovely melange of blueberry, black raspberry, dark boysenberry, sweet dark plum, sandalwood, dried herb and baking-spice scents. It proves plump, bright and delightfully supple on the palate, where tannin brings structural balance rather than coarseness. On the palate, sandalwood and star anise bring a gently woody contrast to the push of dark boysenberry, black raspberry, blueberry, fig and dried dark cherry fruits. The finish is silky, lingering and ideally food-balanced, with any tannic grip appearing as an afterthought. Despite its current attractiveness, it should continue to improve for several years. Blended with 4% Petite Verdot & 2% Malbec.
NVWE Notes: Polished and supple, this lovely wine pairs forthcoming fruit with intriguing hints of Oriental spices. The aromas are a harmonious mix of sweet dark plum, black raspberry, blueberry, black currant, violet, black fig, sandalwood, vanilla, baking-spice and mocha-coffee scents. It provides some unexpected zest on the palate, in support of black cherry, dried blueberry, dark plum, Asian plum sauce, sandalwood, coriander seed, mace, and bay leaf flavors. Chinese five-spice, star anise and a peppercorn undercurrent chime-in at the end. Already well-evolved and food-friendly, it will grow steadily more attractive over the next two years and beyond.
NVWE Notes: This is an elegant and gently floral Sauvignon blanc that wafts scents of lemon blossom, white rose, orange peel tea and honeysuckle above a polished melange of apple, guava, lychee, green melon and white pepper. It is as soft-edged and pretty as expected on the palate, where the softly lingering flavors suggest lemon cream pie, guava, melon, white rose, white pepper and a hint of orange. It is ready to enjoy.
NVWE Notes: 2016 marks a stylistic change for this bottling, with a shift toward greater elegance. The aromas are a genteel perfume of white peach, Asian pear, baked apple, orange blossom, lime curd, brioche and vanilla wafer. It is supple and quietly rich in the mouth, where flavors of green melon, Asian pear, baked apple, lemon meringue, vanilla, baking spices, yellow rose and white pepper find harmony. The finish lingers, with just a hint of honey at the end.
