Jax Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This wine is powerful, dense, but beautifully balanced and precise. In the glass it has an evocative nose defined by true cassis, lush red currants and espresso. The palate shows dark brambly berries and a silky, expansive impression from the Cabernet Sauvignon and exotic spice notes and power from the Cabernet Franc. The structure and density of this vintage will allow the wine to age for decades.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep purple-black in color with a reduced nose of tar, meat and earth with blackberries, plums, pencil lead and herbs nuances. Medium to full-bodied and rich in the mouth, it finishes a bit hard and herbal.
