2016 Gramercy "Reserve" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1537701 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, instantly commands the attention of the drinker. It is generous on the nose, showcasing a dense, chewy core of fruit, exuding bold yet elegant expressions of blackberries, blackcurrant, red cherry and dark, dusty plum. Medium to full-bodied, the palate sings with subtle baking spices—cinnamon and cardamom—and vanilla tones with a complexity that lifts the mid-palate. The focus and purity are captured effortlessly here, ending with a long, drawn-out finish that continues to evolve on the aftertaste well after the wine has left the palate. This bottling deserves to be on your dinner table or in your cellar. It's a stellar wine that delivers pleasure with the purity of expression. (AM) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a smaller production release based on 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot that spent 22 months in 40% new oak. Slightly deeper ruby/purple-hued, with a great nose of ripe blackberry and cassis fruits intermixed with lots of cedary spice, orange blossom, and floral notes, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. 94+ Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red. Crushed blackberry, cassis and minerals on the nose, plus a pungent note of black pepper. Seamless and bright on entry, then utterly smooth in the energetic middle palate, with flavors of black fruits, fruity peppercorn, licorice and graphite given a tightly coiled spring by firm acidity. A classic of its slow-ripening vintage, this very intense, backward wine finishes with serious but utterly suave tannins and slowly mounting floral persistence. A bit more peppery and less spicy than the 2015 release but with terrific energy and similar quality. If anything, this '16 tightened up with extended aeration. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2018)
