Owing partly due to its comparative youth, this is definitely the most powerful, and richest of the Capture wines we have offered thus far. The stunning 2013 and 2014 Harmonie bottlings that we offered previously (and are close to sold) were mostly Cabernet Franc and quite "Bordeaux like" more savory and elegant. The 2016 Capture Innovant is much more like a powerful mountain fruit Cab from Napa Valley...Howell Mountain perhaps. Very inky and concentrated in the glass, bold aromas of black and blue fruit, blackcurrant, damson preserve, graphite, singed cedar, and crushed rock. Medium to full bodied with an impressive array of fine yet grippy tannins. This really makes and impact, the fruit is pure and beautifully enhanced by some nuances of oak spice and char. This is polished and richly fruited enough to drink now even while the structure is quite apparent, however, I think it's best days lay ahead of it if you can resist the youthful exuberance and primary appeal I believe this will develop very nicely in the cellar also. We have an exceptional, winery direct price on these and they drink WAY beyond this price point.
