2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Conversations with the Winemaker: The grapes comprising the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon are a blend of five varieties grown in the Napa Valley — much like the facets of a jewel, each variety contributes a unique element to the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford and St. Helena brings structure and power, the Petit Verdot from southern Napa imparts great texture, the Syrah from Conn Valley — a hidden gem known for bringing out the sweetness in the tannins and the Cabernet Franc from St. Helena, lends a great finesse. The grapes were on the skins for 34 days with an extended maceration before pressing straight to barrel. Aged in barrel for 21 months in Demptos and Seguin Moreau, 21% new French oak.

Wine Profile: The Foreverness Cabernet Sauvignon, adorned with its crystal, is the perfect selection for celebrating those special moments of your life. This 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens up with fresh aromas of red berries and white pepper. Flavors of blueberry, candied violet and tar dance on the palate. This beautifully balanced wine is medium bodied with a long finish and as bold as your eternal love. Pairs well with romantic getaways and proposals. Cheers!
