About

96+

The 100% varietal 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard comes from a site in Calistoga and was raised in 50% new French oak. It offers impressive amounts of cassis and blueberry fruits intermixed with lots of sappy herbs, incense, and California bay leaf-like nuances. Full-bodied, rockingly concentrated and powerful, yet still elegant and seamless. It's a seriously good Napa Cabernet that might just be one of the best at the under 100-dollar price point

Product Description:

"Intoxicating aromas of Bing cherry and black currant. Delicious mid-palate sweetness, gently gripping tannin, finishing with hints of espresso and vanilla bean. A thoroughly ripe vintage with great aging potential." - Bob Foley, Winemaker

"The nose is a clove-like black fruit with cocoa, plum and blackberry tart. The palate is velvet-like Bakers chocolate, tarry blackberry and saturated plum. There is a beautiful wave of spice in the core followed by an impeccable finish of structured, polished black fruit. Drink 2018-2032." - 95 Points Purely Domestic Wine Report | Volume 7.1, December 2018
