The 2016 Signature Mountain Blend is a Merlot-dominated blend and includes 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. It's a powerful yet supple and seamless blend that gives up plenty of red and black fruits, toasted spice, chocolate, and graphite aromas and flavors. Concentrated, super-rich, yet perfectly balanced, it's a total head turner of a Merlot to drink over the coming 15-20 years.

With some fruit coming from the producer's estate vineyard on the slopes of Howell Mountain, this blends 56% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc. A tangy opening makes its way to a rich center of length and breadth, tasting of cassis, dark chocolate and cherry, the tannins well integrated and sleek. This will do well to cellar; enjoy best from 2026–2030.
