Corley Family Napa Valley

2016 Jefferson Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Jefferson Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon
Monticello Vineyards

I find dark, luscious aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and anise with tones of
lightly toasted oak and hints of vanilla. The lighter tones from the barrels are a nice
balance to the dark tones of the wine. On the palate, the wine is rich in texture,
with a full-bodied mid-palate. The moderate tannins frame the wine very nicely as it
enters a very long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2042. - Chris Corley

Production Notes
At the time of this writing, the 2016 vintage represents the fifth consecutive year of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. The fruit displayed great purity and intensity, which translated quite well through to the finished wines. The growing season was relatively consistent. The blocks were crushed and fermented separately, then blended over three different sessions during the 22 months of barrel aging. The flavors and aromas that developed in the fermenters and during barrel aging were fantastic.
Other Notes
We suggest decanting 30-60 minutes prior to serving.
