"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bone Ash Vineyard comes from a site in Calistoga and saw 85% new oak. It's another inky effort and offers sensational notes of blackcurrants, spice box, tobacco, and incense. It's deep, powerful, and concentrated, yet has a flamboyant, sexy texture, sweet tannins (of which there are plenty), terrific balance and blockbuster length. It's a rock star in this stacked lineup."
