2016 Cabernet Sauvignon "Los Ricos Vineyard"

Our one-acre Los Ricos Vineyard produced 1,732 pounds of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2016, from which we made 660 bottles of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, including 60 magnums.  With a unique eastern exposure, the 1,248 vines in the block interact with the sun differently than our other vineyards, which may explain the classic balance, acidity, and aromatics which characterize the wines from this site.  Writing in Vinous, critic Antonio Galloni describes the '16 Los Ricos as "unctious and resonant ... succulent, deeply expressive."  Writing in The Wine Spectator, James Molesworth calls the wine "juicy and fresh ... fine grained and sneaky."
