2016 En Garde "Touché" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1476748 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Touché is a blend of 64% Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Rutherford Petit Verdot. It was aged for 19 months in French oak, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a powerful nose of plum preserves, warm cassis and spiced blackberries with touches of mocha, black licorice, Sichuan pepper and potpourri plus a waft of lavender. Full-bodied, this is a full-on pedal-to-the-metal Cab, bursting with preserved black fruits and exotic spice layers with a tantalizing texture of achingly soft tannins, finishing with great length and depth. POW! What an impact. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Coming from a mix of Diamond Mountain, Mount Veeder, and Rutherford (5% Petit Verdot), the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Touché offers a great nose of blue fruits, chocolate, green tobacco, violets, and a touch of mint. This exotic, medium to full-bodied effort has wonderful complexity, ripe tannins, and good overall freshness. It's a beautiful wine from a great vintage. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A best barrel blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from high elevation vineyards in Napa's top mountain AVAs: Diamond Mountain, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Try this gem and you will be touched!"
