Heiner Lobenberg über:
Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 2016


Lobenberg: Hochkonzentrierte Frucht, dunkle Beeren, Schokolade und Johannisbeeraromen. Dicht und seidig und lang. Einer der größten Weine der Welt und ein Monument des kalifornischen Weinbaus, zusammen mit dem Monte Bello von Ridge der langfristig vielleicht beste Rotwein der USA. 100/100


Galloni über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Galloni: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is a wine of extraordinary beauty. The purity of the flavors is simply striking, but what really stands out is the wine's mind-blowing balance and total sense of harmony. An exotic mélange of inky blue/purplish fruit, spice, new leather, lavender and licorice build as this sumptuous, dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its alluring personality. In a word: magnificent! 100/100


Parker über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Parker: Very deep, vibrant purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select strides confidently out of the glass with expressive notions of blueberry preserves, Black Forest cake, cassis and cedar chest with touches of pencil lead, licorice, violets and sandalwood plus a an exotic waft of Indian spices. The rich, densely packed, full-bodied palate is at once thrillingly hedonic and perfectly poised, featuring a rock-solid frame of firm, exquisitely ripe tannins and tons of freshness, finishing epically long and with stunning opulence. Bravo! 100/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Pure perfection, the prodigious 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select reveals an even deeper purple/blue hue as well as extraordinary notes of unsmoked tobacco, crushed rocks, graphite, crème de cassis, and blueberries. With a massive, full-bodied profile and a texture that builds incrementally on the palate, it has a stacked mid-palate, ultra-fine (yet lots of them) tannins, flawless balance, and a monster of a finish. It’s tight and closed at the moment, so hide bottles for a solid 7-8 years. It should age at a glacier pace. 100/100
