The 2016 Sestina checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc that saw 21 months in 48% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. It shows the purity and elegance of the vintage beautifully and offers classic Cabernet notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, crushed rocks, and tobacco leaf. With beautiful balance and that more elegant, finesse-driven style of the estate ... Winemaker Chris Peterson continues to fashion some of the most impressive wines in the State. These are always more classical in style and show plenty of acidity and structure in their youth, yet they blossom with just short term cellaring and are brilliant wines. 95+
Impressive blue flowers on the nose with a wealth of fresh, ripe berries and an alluringly subtle thread of spices. The palate has a neatly contained, central drive of fresh flavor, swathed in silky, long and fine tannins. Impressive. Drink or hold.
Composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Sestina has a focused nose with a robust, still-tight fruit core, subtle oak tones and soft floral aromas. Full-bodied in the mouth, the wine shows a classic expression of Cabernet with focused minerality, blackberry, plum and sage as it evolves on the palate. The wine lingers long with elegance and finesse on the finish, showing great precision that will last a decade and more. Just 410 cases were produced. (AM)
Bright dark red. Alluring violet and rose petal lift to the aromas of dark berries, licorice and black olive. Penetrating, savory wine with terrific saline minerality and lift to its wild berry and licorice flavors. This very concentrated, backward wine finishes with serious tannins but no rough edges. A bit more sharply focused than its 2015 sibling but this wine will need longer for its tannic spine to unclench. Includes a good percentage of vines from the 1970s; aged in about 45% new oak.
