The Woodlands Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our original plantings our south-facing slope. This wine is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.
Our 2016 is a captivating dark crimson, sitting in the glass with confidence and ease. The nose is magnetic and engaging, with a spirited crunch and vibrant red fruits interlaced with violet and black rose tea. A backdrop of dark cherries and blackcurrant mixes with scented aromatics of mace and sandalwood. The palate is pristine and polished, and sheathed in a velvet veil of tannin, promising years in the cellar. It will continue to cellar well until 2040.

“One of the most beautifully elegant of these super premium Woodlands Cabernets. This was a vintage known for the heft of its tannins, harnessed to be part of an elegant wine of blissful refinement. Perfumed notes of black fruit and violets. The palate is so beautifully woven with effortless power and length.” – Ray Jordan
