Gemstone Alluvial Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This wine, with its dense core, flinty minerality and forceful tannins, is a bold, focused expression of a distinctive section of our vineyard. Rich black cherry and plum aromas lead into a hefty, polished palate, revealing notes of cocoa, spice, eucalyptus and crushed rock. Well-established tannins give structure to this powerful, balanced wine that should age beautifully for 20+ years.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple, the 2016 Estate ‘Alluvial Selection’ Cabernet Sauvignon comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, charcoal and menthol scents with touches of garrigue, smoked meats and roasted nuts. Full-bodied, concentrated and with wonderful brightness in the mouth, it has a fantastic line of finely grained tannins and a long, mint-laced finish.
