Napa Valley’s Extraordinary 2016 Cabernets (Dec 2018)

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a huge, potent wine that shows the natural richness of these sites in Coombsville and Howell Mountain that inform the blend. Back cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and spice flesh out in a racy, voluptuous wine that will tempt readers with its sheer allure. A dollop of Merlot (10%) adds suppleness. Bold and voluptuous in the glass, the 2016 is one of the finest Napa Valley Cabernets readers will find under $100.
