CS NV 2016 Wine Advocate 90


Wine Advocate


The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 18 months in 70% new French oak. It has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of warm cassis, freshly crushed black berries, wild blueberries and cedar chest with hints of pencil lead, new leather, Marmite toast and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chock-full of juicy black fruit, it has a great line of freshness and firm grainy tannins paving the finish.
