The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak extracted color and flavor, before a combination of tank and barrel fermentation was used to provide a richer, more textured palate. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging.

Tasting Notes

This wine is deep purple with a bright fuscia rim. The nose is expressive, with aromas of red cherry and sage with a hint of violet, spice and toast. The wine is full-bodied, packed with flavors of raspberry and black cherry, along with notes of violet and toast from the oak. Supple tannins carry through to a fine and smooth finish.

 

Ratings & Reviews

Wine of the Week - The Press Democrat:
"Allen is the winemaker behind our wine of the week winner — the Rombauer Vineyards, 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at $68. The full-bodied cabernet has generous fruit — red cherry, blackberry and black raspberry, with sage and toast in the mix. It has firm tannins, a supple texture and a lingering finish. It’s impressive." (November 10, 2020)


90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage):
"Blended 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." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Jan 2019)
