2016 Laki's Cabernet Sauvignon
Laki's Vineyard, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley
With 2016 being our fifth bottling of our Laki’s Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, we have the opportunity to really see how this vineyard expresses itself differently each vintage. From the perfect weather and powerful wines of 2013, the dark fruit and softness of 2014, to the low yields and bright wines of 2015, each year has its own nuances while maintaining the core of beautiful dark fruit that makes our Laki’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon so wonderful and sought after. The 2016 vintage was very generous in quantity and quality. This red and purple-hued wine is dark and delicious with multiple layers of both lush red and black fruit. That lushness carries on through the palate where this wine showcases flavors of sweet black plums, boysenberry, and pomegranate all intricately woven together by soft, velvety tannins. With delicious fruit flavors so lavishly displayed, this wine is very approachable while simultaneously being formidable with all the heft and structure needed to age. Any chance you have to open this bottle is an occasion in and of itself and this wine will show very well by itself or paired with a hearty meal.
