#57 - 2016 Brilliant Mistake Wines Cabernet Sauvignon – 96 points


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96 points - The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It has a very deep garnet-purple color and features beautifully youthful, vibrant black cherries, black berries and red and black currants scents with wafts of kirsch, lilacs, roses and red soil plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, stunningly elegant and well-poised in the mouth, it has a very sexy frame of plush tannins and a fantastic perfume pervading the very long mineral-laced finish. A monumental success this year, this wine proves that mistakes are not just a necessary part of continual improvement, occasionally they can be absolutely inspired. Bravo! Drink dates 2021 – 2048.

The 2016 Brilliant Mistake Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux style blend, made up of 90% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cabernet franc, and 5% petit Verdot from vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville, St. Helena, and Pritchard Hill. this is a bold and powerful wine, with a garnet-purple color and deep acidity. vibrant, plush and textural notes of black cherries, plum, black currants, cedar, espresso, mocha, and spice are present in the glass. structured and intense tannins coat the palate, introducing multiple layers, with a finish epic in length.
