|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Jeb DunnuckA blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Ridge Vineyard sports a saturated purple color as well as a seriously rich, powerful nose of blackcurrants, incense, chocolate, dried flowers, and sage brush. This thrilling Cabernet has full-bodied power, terrific purity, no hard edges, and a layered, deep, rich, and serious style.
Wine AdvocateComposed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Ridge gives fragrant crème de cassis, spiced black cherries, preserved plums and lilacs with touches of chocolate box, wood smoke and tobacco plus a hint of crushed stones. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and structured with great freshness and loads of layers. 150 cases produced.
