The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage has been rated Classic by wine writers (96-100 points). The 2016 Uncle George is no exception with many who have sipped this classic will testify it is the best Cabernet to touch their lips.
It is no wonder that it took me over 25 tasting trials to perfect and tweak the perfect blend of 75% Rutherford Bench and St. Helena Appellation Cabernet Sauvignon along with measured and meticulously additions of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from the same vineyard source.
Dark majestic in color and of noble and royal character. Oozing with black cherry, dark red rose pedal, and swirls of raspberry scented chocolate mousse. Following a lovely sweet, soft entry, flavors on the palate suggest a very solid core of black currant, ripe red cherry pie, and black licorice, with dark red fruit liquor overtones. A lingering smooth, silky and satin finish is highlighted by an orchestra of exotic fruit flavors. Artistry in a bottle
