"While the 2016 Ontogeny Red Wine might be the least expensive wine in the lineup, it’s unquestionably at the same quality level as the top tier releases. Boasting a saturated purple color and sensational notes of plums, currants, chocolate, and graphite, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, incredible opulence and decadent, no hard edges and perfect overall balance. It’s the real deal, and readers should snatch up this beauty."
"Ontogeny. Like our EE, this is more Cabernet Sauvignon then ever before. Less mineral, more pure fruit. It also has a layer of richness that the previous Ontogeny wines did not have. The fruit profile from the additional Cabernet Sauvignon is blackberry, boysenberry, and there is a hint of mocha that really pops on the finish. Deep purple, incredibly seductive. This is as decadent as Ontogeny has ever been. Ontogeny is the last blend to be put together, therefore the last to be reviewed..." - Winery
