Wine Advocate Review
Rated 91
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Heritage Reserve gives up pronounced cassis, Black Forest cake, earth and herbs on the nose with touches of cigar box and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate gives good intensity and depth in the lively mouth with firm, grainy tannins and a long finish. Drink now-2031.

Wine Tasting Notes
Well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec are sourced from Rancho Salina, a volcanic soil vineyard high above the Sonoma Valley in the southern end of the Mayacamas Mountains. Select Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from Atwood Vineyard provide complexity. Merlot from Sangiacomo Vineyard in southern Carneros offers a lush mid-palate, with Petit Verdot and Malbec from Pickberry Vineyard on Sonoma Mountain enhancing the long, rich finish. is wine shows dense color and structure; intense aromas of dark cherry and plum; and ripe flavors of dark fruits and warm spice. Well-integrated tannins, soft oak, and acidity give it a balanced and elegant texture and finish. is lovely wine can be enjoyed on release to pair with rich meats and cheeses, yet will reward cellaring for a decade or more.

76% Cabernet Sauvignon: Rancho Salina and Atwood Vineyard, 16% Merlot: Rancho Salina and Sangiacomo Vineyard, 7% Malbec: Rancho Salina and Pickberry Vineyard, 1% Petit Verdot: Pickberry Vineyard Vineyard
