"A step up, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pickett Road Block boasts a warmer, riper, sexier style as well as loads of black raspberry and blackcurrants fruits, flowery incense, and lead pencil shaving-like aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied, seamless, and elegant, with sweet tannins, and is just packed with character and charm. Drink this beauty any time over the coming 10-15 years or more." - Jeb Dunnuck

Winemaker Notes
This is a bold wine full of character. Looking into the glass, we are met by an impenetrable purple-black hue. Aromatic notes swell from the glass in waves of cedar bark, lavender, distressed leather and blueberry compote. The palate expresses supple black fruit notes, coupled with a structured earthy compliment of fresh loam, and umami. The tannin structure is at once present, without being obtrusive, providing a lasting framework to the wine. With a few hours in the decanter or 5-7 years in the cellar this wine will open up and develop into an even more expressive example of this historic vineyard site.
