Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 | Limited Run Exclusive Secret Release
Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 presents dense, sumptuous, bramble-y aromatics. In addition, blending blackberry, blueberry, soil, and plum with fresh-ground coffee and graphite. While glossy on the palate, the black fruit core shows a streak of menthol and framed by chocolatey tannins. Finally, the acid is vivid and the finish persistent, with hints of violets and vanilla.
So, tasting an unmarked bottle of Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 set off fireworks in the tasting room. Coming from a vineyard, supplying Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to some of the top cult brands in Napa. Well above the fog line, the high-elevation site sees refreshing gusts of cool wind and abundant sunlight, while the roots below struggle to find purchase in volcanic rock and shale. The plot often produces less than a ton per acre. And in hot, low-yield vintages like 2016, the fruit is stunningly exquisite.
Exciting Unique opportunity
So, this is definitely one of those if you knew who made it and where it’s from, we would have to charge 5-10x more. Start with a special mountain Napa Cabernet. Then add the special talent of this winemaker’s caliber. With graphite and plum touched with vanilla and sweet spice on the nose, and purple fruit and licorice on the palate were framed by chocolatey tannins. Even if you weren’t a fan of classic Napa Cabs, this was impossible not to like.
Turns out one of the brands the winemaker consulted for bought the fruit for a private label but decided it didn’t fit with their marketing plan. So, he’d been toying around with it, looking to get that perfect balance between the firm structure of mountain fruit and the dense, almost savory concentration of the 2016 vintage. Mission accomplished!
Likely your only chance
This was an incredibly limited-run production, and the descriptions are accurate. So, this is a top-notch Napa Cab that will sell out in no time. Today, we’re thrilled to share it. Don’t wait on securing your share of Editorial, because we can’t guarantee it will ever be back.
