2016 Aperture Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1403114 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Similar colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 50% new French oak) offers slightly more graphite and crushed rock as well as rich black fruits, tobacco, cedar pencil, and earthy aromas and flavors. It's a rich, full-bodied, chewy wine that has good acidity, plenty of tannins, and an outstanding finish. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 7% Merlot and was aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it has a mineral-driven nose of gravel dust, cassis, crushed black plum, bay leaf, soil and cocoa with notes of grilled beef, a classy framing of new oak spice and loads of red fruit accents. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich and plush with mineral and spice seamlessly woven into the fruit layers. It's framed by über ripe, pixelated tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and seamless. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

This wine is a bit of an enigma for me. On the one hand, I am not particularly fond of rich wines (my palate definitely craves acidity), but this release from Aperture does richness in the RIGHT way. A captivating, rich nose of dark, black fruits and chocolate. Blackberry and tobacco and cocoa on the palate. Oh, so rich, but oh, so very, very good!
