Notes from the Winemaker:
Wearing its youth in the form of a deep violet color, the 2016 Cenyth will evolve into the traditional ruby, garnet and amber hues of maturity. The nose reveals aromatics that are moderate in intensity and the palate is led by fresh fruits. Red plum and fresh blackberry are prominent – all balanced by a frame of French oak – and complemented by notes of roasted coffee and baking spices.

Non-fruit aromas of fresh flowers, spearmint, and bay leaf add a brightness and lift to the nose. Acid and tannin dance together on the long finish, continuing the theme of youthful freshness and complexity

Composition: 50% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon

Ratings & Reviews


94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Cenyth Red Wine Blend is blended of 50% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with expressive baking spices, fragrant earth and vibrant red and black currant scents with touches of underbrush, pencil shavings and tar with a waft of charcuterie. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness framing the densely packed red and black fruit layers, finishing long. 1,740 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Oct 2018)

91-93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2016 Red Wine (Sonoma County) is laced with the essence of blackberry jam, chocolate, mocha, new leather and licorice. Bold and ample on the palate, with quite a bit of structure, the 2016 is decidedly ripe and also virile in style. The 2016 is shaping up to be the best wine from Cenyth yet." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)
