2016 CV RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon
In 2012, we achieved perfect fruit ripeness, resulting in a wine of outstanding depth.
Beginning with the nose: blackcurrants, pine needles, along with underlying oak spices paint the picture of international appeal. This cohesion of integrated flavors easily translates to a mouthfeel full of blueberry sensations and silky tannins. The linear finish leaves a rejuvenated palate that is not overwhelmed by over structured tannin, showing that a bigger wine is not always better.
There are many special dishes and occasions that can pair with this wine, but in our humble opinion, only one reigns supreme: seared lamb. Take three-inch lamb cutlets, brush with olive oil, black pepper, and garlic, then sear from the bottom and quickly flip to finish.
Only new oak is used and the average aging is 23 months. The tightness of the wine indicates its ability to age for many years to come.
