Cult 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon California
Our Cult 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a melange of baking spices including cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and cocoa powder. Savory and fruit-forward, this medium-bodied Cab features notes of black cherry, raspberry, blood orange peel, cola, and forest floor. The palate boasts chalky, refined tannins and smoothness throughout, finishing long. A touch of vanilla can be found on the finish.
The Cult 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a structured and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon from three prestigious California wine regions — each lending their own unique characteristics to provide a Cabernet that is sure to create a following. They believe a handcrafted Cabernet should be cultivated through terroir knowledge, blending expertise and barrel selection.
Flavorful, well-structured and well-balanced, this is a wine for all seasons. With a medium to full body, generous black cherry and raspberry aromas, and a nicely dry mouthfeel, it is ready to pair with almost any meat, fowl or cheesy dish.
A chewy, fruit-forward, outgoing Cabernet Sauvignon done in a ripe, classic California style. Structured, layered and full-bodied, this wine offers loads of black cherry, cassis and raspberry with a long, sleek finish. Dark, playful and full of character; relaxed yet the life of the party!
Great price for a Cab this good, and surprising that it’s non-vintage. Toasty oak stands out, not unpleasantly, and then the blackberries, black currants and dark chocolate kicks in. Holds its own among far more expensive Napa Cabernets.
The cult is handcrafted by two Napa Valley-born and raised wine veterans, Rich Salvestrin and Scott Lloyd. Salvestrin is not only a third-generation grape grower, but after obtaining a degree in Viticulture from Fresno State transformed the family business into his namesake St Helena winery.
