Alta Vista Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Taut, with fine-grained flavors of dark currant, dried dark cherry and berry that are accented by intense notes of tar and black licorice. Savory finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,670 cases made, 300 cases imported.
Foxy berry and plum aromas rattle around before settling on scented hand soap. A tight palate owes its feel to grape skins, while staunch acidity sticks out. Said acidity makes for narrow plum flavors and a drawing finish with controlled tartness.
