Fruit for the 2016 Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from Monte Rosso Vineyard (84%) and growing partners in Napa Valley. Dense dark fruit notes abound in this robust Cabernet Sauvignon, with ripe blackberry, cassis and wild blueberries leading the charge. Pronounced earth tones follow suit, along with a Mayan chocolate spiciness on the firm, lasting finish.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sentinel contains a 1% splash of Petit Verdot and was aged 19 months in 57% new French oak and 2% in new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with a beautiful perfume of candied violets, chocolate box and camphor over a core of cassis, blackberry tart and wild blueberries plus hints of cedar chest and lavender. Full, firm and taut, it has layers of black fruit and minty flavors with a long, savory finish. 7,142 cases produced.
Broad and rich in feel, featuring warmed cassis and plum sauce flavors, inlaid with a swath of tobacco and backed by a loamy hint on the dense, toasty finish. Delivers more oomph than purity in the end. Drink now through 2025. 7,142 cases made.
