The Cabernet, dry-footed ripens well here and Merlot develops complexity - all helped by the proximity of river and ocean both moderating temperatures. 2016 is rounded and sappy with black-fruited finesse, all supported by well-integrated, silky tannins and graphite minerals
The nose is dominated by the fruits, very aromatic with hints of black fruit, blackberry, blueberry. The palate is powerful enough tannic but the balance between fruit and tannins give a perfect balance to the lingering finish of this great wine.
