Jeb Dunnuck über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Jeb Dunnuck: -- Dunnuck: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Colombia Valley is a beautiful wine and has a more classic profile than the more sexy, massive 2015. Beautiful notes of creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, dried herbs, and loamy earth all flow to a full-bodied, incredibly pure and perfectly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that has no hard edges, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, good acidity, and a great, great finish. It reminds me of the 2002 with its uber classic, balanced yet broad and powerful style. 98+/100

Parker über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Parker: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a ripe nose with a precise core of generous, healthy and robust red and black fruits. Bursting from the glass, chocolate-covered black cherries with elegant blackberry tones effortlessly strut their stuff next to seductive tones of French oak spices and subtle savory and floral tones. Full-bodied, the wine turns a touch tart in the mouth, with a focused acid structure balanced by lush tannins. The mid-palate is perfectly balanced, with rich dark cherry notes framing the oak expressions. The ripe core of fruit and oak dance vibrantly on the long, elaborate and generous finish, and the aftertaste lingers on for more than a minute after the wine has left the palate. This is a stunning and impressive wine in this vintage, one for collectors to take note of and seek out. 4,975 cases were produced. 98/100

International Wine Report über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- International Wine Report: The 2016 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely stunning in this vintage. This explodes open with seductive aromas of fresh blackberries, creme de cassis and black cherries which are accented by graphite, violets, mocha and herbs that all come together beautifully. The full-bodied palate is plush and utterly seamless, as it shows remarkable overall balance with gorgeous underlying acidity adding a wonderful sense of freshness. It goes on to display outstanding concentration all the way through the long, lavish finish. While this is simply irresistible today, it also has the potential to evolve in the cellar for decades. Sourced from Champoux, Lake Wallula, Palengat, and Wallula vineyards, this is an absolutely marvelous wine from Quilceda Creek. 98/100

Galloni über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Galloni: Moderately saturated dark red with ruby tones. Classic, complex Cabernet scents of black fruits, cocoa powder and sexy herbs lifted by a strong mineral component; the high-quality Taransaud and Darnajou barrels come through clearly but not loudly. Wonderfully smooth, tight-grained wine with gloriously ripe but not roasted flavors of wild blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and minerals. Harmonious ripe acidity gives this wine outstanding finesse and lifts the fruit. I find this wine more relaxed than the superb 2015 version, perhaps because there was little in the way of vine stress in '16. Perhaps most impressive in the early going on the extremely long, slowly building back end, which features noble tannins, great suavity and outstanding lift. (3.97 pH; made from Palengat, Champoux and Wallula vineyards, all in Horse Heaven Hills, but the label for this wine has said Columbia Valley for a long time; in an earlier era the label used the even more generic Washington State appellation) 97/100

Weingut über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Weingut: Weingut : The 2016 vintage was stellar due to warm summer growing conditions and cool temperatures in the fall, which extended hang-time and developed complex aromatics and flavors. Winemaker Paul Golitzin describes the wine's texture as luxurious, with layer upon layer of rich and concentrated crème de cassis, blackberry and black plum fruit coating the palate with a deep, memorable impact. Nuances of violet, anise, leather, dark chocolate, black truffle and minerals can also be found in this incredibly pure wine of great power and finesse. It will drink well on release and over the next 2-3 decades.
