Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateBlended of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notions of pure cassis and crushed plums with tobacco, sage and forest floor in the background. Medium-bodied, it has great vivacity and a plush texture with a peppery finish.
Wine SpectatorWarm blueberry, açaí berry and blackberry puree flavors form the core. Polished in feel, with melted licorice and sweet tobacco accents hanging on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 10,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBlended with 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this wine opens in a tartness of acidity as layers of dried herb, leather and black cherry develop. The texture is soft and simple, making the full-bodied concentration approachable.
