2016 Icaria Creek Cabernet Sauvigon

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES

Our 2016 has beautiful black color turning to ruby red towards the rim. It has tantalizing aromas of chocolate covered boysenberries and blackberries, vanilla, sage and pine. On the palate, the broad and rich entry of black fruit, exotic spices on the mid palate. The finish is silky with earth, cedar box and fine tannins that round out the wine to it’s completion.

This rugged hillside fruit presents a mouthful of generous age-worthy structure of mineral and graphite. The extended hang time provides a wonderful mid palate of sweet berries that seem to linger on the palate forever.

Drink now thru 2025. Optimum time 2018-2023.
