Our 2016 Star Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass with exuberant dark blackberry and blueberry fruit, alongside earthy and floral characters of violet, black licorice, and anise. The palate is smooth and plush with saturated, rich blackberry, dark plum, blueberry, and black cherry. This Cabernet is very expressive with bright acidity that carries the weight accented by sweet, chewy, firm tannins and hints of tea leaf on the extraordinary finish. The firm cocoa-powder tannins—a signature of Rutherford dust character—enhance the velvet texture and well-balanced structure, providing a mineral-rich finish, as well as giving this Cabernet its cellar-worthiness. Only 311 cases were produced, and they are available exclusively at our winery.
