The 2016 Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 brings attention to the Red Mountain AVA in Washington State. This wine has a little bit of everything, and it is nicely put together. Enjoy its formidable aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and earth with a juicy, grilled ribeye.
Robust and alluring, this gorgeous expression of Red Mountain Cabernet offers a medley of blue plum, black cherry and red berry aromas, along with notes of black licorice, cardamom, clove and sandalwood. On the palate, a creamy entry and ripe, fine-grained tannins build to a richly polished mid-palate, where luxurious layers of fruit mingle with hints of hazelnut, nutmeg, and baking spices.
Bright, compelling aromas of raspberry, red currant and spice lead to ripe red-fruit flavors that taper toward the finish. Plump, surprisingly tamed tannins provide support.
The 2016 Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 growing season will likely be one of the stars of the decade. Marked by deep color, generous richness, and fine-grained tannins, the 2016 Cabernets benefited from an unusually long growing season. An early bud-break, above-average spring rainfall, and warm spring temperatures were followed by mild summer and fall weather.
The 2016 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon has also been blended with 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It has a nose of healthy red and black fruit along with the dusty Red Mountain minerality. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals a well-made wine with precision and balance and evolving expressions of red flowers, dusty minerality and balancing tannins on the long, well-structured finish.
Bright red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of plum, redcurrant, blueberry, mocha, tobacco leaf, menthol, cardamom and sandalwood. Surprisingly soft in the mouth, with a silkiness of texture.
