Winemaker Notes

The 1996 Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is a richly textured wine built on flavors of ripe plums, berry jam and dark chocolate. The palate is layered with supple tannins permeated with cedar, coffee and chocolate. The satin feel of the wine extends through the palate to a chewy finish echoing the nuance of ripe plum and spices.

Pair this wine with the most elegant fare – Beef Wellington, Roast Pork Loin, Steak Diane, as well as rich aged cheeses, or decadent desserts such as chocolate-dipped cherries or strawberries.

Wine Enthusiast
Refinement and depth show from the start in aromas of chocolate, raisin, and creamy vanilla. The palate of intense cassis, black-cherry, and licorice flavors and the full mouthfeel display style and unrestrained power. Dark sweet-and-sour fruit, plenty of oak and full, dusty tannins play out on the long finish. Cellar Selection.
