Wine Advocate Review
Rated 96-100 Classic/Highest Recommendation
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Endeavour Vineyard displays a deep garnet-purple color and gives up notes of of cedar chest, creme de cassis, baked blackberries and plum preserves with hints of bay leaves and black soil. The full-bodied palate is wearing a good amount of oak at this youthful stage with a firm, grainy frame and great freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
Wine Tasting Notes
The distinctive soil and terroir provide a wonderful canvas from which to craft a wine of elegance that displays both power and finesse. At first swirl, notes of cedar, black tea and cherry come forward, followed by deeper aromatics of strawberry jam, molasses and espresso. On the palate, elegant flavors of black currants, cassis and toast mingle with sweet and spicy notes. The refined tannins are well integrated, providing a long, lingering finish.
