THE WINE

With 2016 being touted as a “near-perfect” growing season, the third vintage of our flagship estate wine is an exceptional example of how stunning Cabernet Sauvignon from the terroir of our estate vineyard in Alexander Valley can be.

TASTING NOTES

The 2016 Battle Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon embodies our cool climate hillside vineyard. A beautiful nose of blackberry pie, dried spices, black currant and anise welcomes you into the glass. The mid-palate is lush and full, framing the fruit and bringing with it flavors of black cherry and hints of cigar box. A balanced combination of silky, savory tannins leads to a long, elegant finish making this an incredibly cellar-worthy wine.
