2016 Caspar Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
2016 Vintage Notes
An early bud break followed by warm weather and spring rains brought a rapid start to this year’s near perfect growing season in the valley. The fruit enjoyed beautiful weather during bud break and plenty of time to hang on the vines. Although yields were down due to drought, the berries were nice and plump, which resulted in balanced and complex flavor profile.
2016 Caspar Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic elegance and structure with power and intensity that you have come to know and love. The depth and reflections of this dense, dark-black color almost lets your mind imagine the complexity of the Caspar Estate rocky, mineral-infused terroir as it opens up in your glass.
The aromas carry you to the hillside above the fog. Layers of coffee, dark coco, graphite, cassis and spiced plum intertwine as you swirl. The tannin structure is perfectly balanced with the acidity and full mouth texture that reminds you this is why you drink the best. Caspar Estate Cabernets are made to store and gain its proper age for an intriguing future.
