2016Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2016 Tenor Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several vineyards across two separate AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley and Red Mountain. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one or two clusters per shoot for maximum concentration. They were then hand-harvested over several early mornings in late October, with the final pick on October 27th, 2016. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in either concrete (95%) or stainless steel (5%) tanks. Using only the free-run wine, it was then moved to custom French oak barrels for 26 months of cellaring. After nearly 50 individual evaluations by our winemaking team, only 10 barrels were selected and bottled, without fining or filtration, on January 23rd, 2019. These 10 barrels resulted in only 234 cases.

Tasting Notes

A bold and modern nose with abundant baking spices and fresh charcuterie, as well as plentiful sweet berries. The palate has a sleek, smooth and fluid core of fresh blueberries, cherries and plums. Smoothly delivered, long and full of charm.

Awards & Accolades

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is all varietal and spent 26 months in 60% new French oak. This deep purple-colored effort is a sexy Cabernet that has loads of black and blue fruits, plenty of background graphite and chocolaty oak, medium to full body, and remarkable purity of fruit. It shows more tannic grip with time in the glass, but it’s all about upfront, pure, supple, seamless fruit. It’s one of the finest Cabernets I’ve tasted from this estate."
