This 100% Estate-grown Cabernet offers up an amazing bouquet of classic dark Cabernet fruit that jumps out of the glass upon impact. This youngster is lush, full in bodied and surprisingly well-balanced. The wine is multi-layered loaded with gorgeous black currant, dark chocolate, a whiff of anise, cassis and a touch of spice on the opulent palate. Extremely well-balanced and in-sync wine that will please the big Cab lover. This is a killer wine, but unfortunately a very limited production.
Winemaker Notes: “The 2016 Aftermath Cabernet Sauvignon is darkly colored and extremely flavorful. The nose is redolent with ripe dark fruit, such as cassis and blackberry, and there are hints of sage, anise, and fir. The wine is medium to full-bodied with bright acidity to balance the fruit and noticeable minerality on the mid-palate. The fruit lingers in a long finish with a hint of slate/graphite (reminiscent of what is referred to as “Rutherford dust”).”
