Critical Acclaim: 93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate; 93 pts Wine Spectator.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Vibrant notes of rustic red fruit, rosemary, sage, and thyme are all supported by mouthwatering tannins and a soft and luxurious finish.
"Fresh, with racy red currant, Damson and red cherry fruit flavors running through. Flecked with light savory notes and hints of sassafras, with an iron note lacing the piercing finish. Latent grip too, so cellar for maximum effect."- Wine Spectator.
"Marked by scents of bay leaf, sage, cherries and cassis, the full-bodied 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailside Vineyard is dense but with a classic linear Cabernet structure. Quite sculpted and fresh for valley-floor fruit, it's focused and long on the finish, gently dusty but firm. Once a walnut grove, the vineyard extends from the Silverado Trail down toward the Napa River, with this bottling using fruit from both the rocky, lower bench section of the vineyard near the road and a sandier parcel closer to the river."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
