Stanton Vineyards Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$74.99

From winemaker Dave Phinney              A fantastic small-production Cabernet from Napa Valley made by Dave Phinney for Stanton Vineyards.  Highly recommended. The combo of Stanton's prime Oakville vineyards, winemaker Dave Phinney (ex-Orin Swift, The Prisoner) and the near-perfect 2016 vintage has created one of the most compelling Napa Cabs we've recently tasted!  The Stanton family has been growing grapes in the Napa Valley since 1947. Beginning with the harvest of 1999, Doug Stanton began selecting some of their best Oakville Cabernet for the Stanton Vineyards label. This vintage brings a reprise of the last year's 100% representation of their Estate Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Everything from its deep purple color to its aromas of dark berries, Creme de Cassis, blueberries, sweet vanilla and humidor spice marks this as an exceptionally ripe Cabernet. 91 Points Wine Spectator: "A rugged outline gives this version a chewy core of dusty graphite and crushed rock earthiness, with blackberry, licorice and cedary oak notes. Drink now through 2028."
