Winemaker Notes

The 2016 vintage was a classic growing season in the Napa Valley, giving us an elegant, balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep plum in color, the 2016 Tarot greets with you with light notes of incense and musk on the nose. As it sits in your glass, it opens up with notes of fig, cacao nibs and black currants. The wine dances across your palate with notes of dark black cherry, dusty rose and marion berry pie finishing with a note of wild berry. The bright acidity leads to a long, lingering finish. Pair with Crispy Pork Belly or Duck Confit. COMPOSITION 85% Cabernet Sauvignon (clones 337 & 4), 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

RP93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Tarot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 34% new French oak. Very deep purple-black in color, it gives up gregarious notions of blackcurrant pastilles, blueberry compote and blackberry pie with hints of wood smoke, cedar chest, menthol and fragrant soil. Full, concentrated and with a lovely structure of firm, very fine-grained tannins, it has great freshness and depth

A soft, fruity red with blackberries, blueberries and chocolate. Spices, such as cinnamon and cardamon. Medium to full body. Round tannins. Drink now or hold.
