2016 Vintner Select Cabernet Sauvignon

A breadth of flavors, including raspberry, grenadine, pomegranate, ripe plum, shortbread, chocolate, mint, fresh rosemary, Alsatian spice and savory marine notes, emerge from this compelling wine that is simultaneously dense, structured and elegant, with continually evolving layers of fruit and spice.

Our Vintner Select Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from 100% Clone 337 cabernet sauvignon planted in several choice blocks on our estate. This selection of cabernet is one that needs a warm, sunny site and plenty of hangtime in order to ripen fully, but when able to achieve peak ripeness, it develops a complex, perfumey character, round texture and tannins that integrate into the wine at an early stage. As a result, it produces a graceful wine that balances power and elegance beautifully. In comparison to our bolder Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the Vintner Select shows less imposing tannins in its youth
