The latest release of Fisticuffs will really knock your socks off! Fisticuffs’ vision is to produce the highest quality wine while keeping price well managed – in essence, to over deliver, Knock you out.
Rob Lawson has been making stunning wines under various “cult” Cabernet labels such as Ghostblock, Mirror, Pahlmeyer and Kapcsandy for many years and did not skip a beat with the stunning 2016 vintage. For those who dream of big and expensive Cabernets and don’t want to pay the big bucks… I have got news for you! This is a wine that tastes a lot more expensive than its price point! This wine is “the” real deal! A knockout value
The Wine: The 2016 Fisticuffs is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet . This “value” Cab offers up aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry, cedar, and rose complement a mouth coating palate of vine ripened blackberry and baked raspberry. The tannins are modestly firm yet subtle and expansive, and slowly yield to mocha and candied pecans on the silky finish. This wine over-delivers for its price point! This is a $30s wine that tastes more like a $60 one!
