Vinous 90 points – The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is plump, forward and inviting, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. The creme de cassis, lavender and sweet spice flavors are nicely pushed forward in this pretty appellation-level Cabernet from Sequoia Grove..December/2018
Rich and full-bodied with superb fruit depth and voluptuous, ripe berry flavors carrying into a long, lovely finish.
Sequoia Grove is a family-owned winery founded in 1979 in a 110-year old barn beneath a grove of Sequoia trees in Rutherford, Napa Valley. It is here where we’ve honed our craft of creating world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and other Napa Valley wines that emphasize elegance, finesse, structure and balance. Our consistent philosophy of making wines with varietal character that are reflective of the land helped establish Sequoia Grove as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Napa Valley. Our 24-acre Estate Vineyard and 50-acre Tonella Ranch Vineyard are both located in the heart of Rutherford, where the superb climate and gravelly-loam soils impart distinct flavor in the Bordeaux varieties.
This elegantly crafted, balanced wine is marked by fine, pure, ripe blackberry and cassis flavors and aromas with notes of spice, cedar and discreet vanilla set in a silky texture supported by refined tannins.
