A new vintage of our flagship wine – open and expressive, with velvety and explosive flavors across the palate. Blackberry-like ripe Cab flavors with amazing silky textural tannins and a persistent long finish.
As we forge ahead with harvest 2019, we are excited to unveil a gorgeous new release: our flagship 2016 La Sirena Cabernet Sauvignon.
2016 as a vintage marked the end of the multi-year drought (2012-2015) – we finally got a lot of RAIN! It was a glorious and much-appreciated return to “normalcy”, and sometimes normal is the best thing you can ask for. We saw optimal growing weather throughout the spring and summer, a nice steady harvest season, normal crop levels – for once, it was basically a textbook, ideal Napa season, and we expect to see some truly classic wines from the 2016 vintage as a result.
Tasting Notes: Tasted 10/01/19 by HPB
The 2016 Cab is ripe and concentrated, darkly colored and very aromatic in the glass. Immediate notes of blackberry pie, plum, and black cherry are rounded out with 5 spice, cedar, and an accent of toasty French oak. Big flavors meld with a plush, velvety texture on the palate – tannins are velvety and integrated, providing the structure to make this wine cellar-worthy for many years to come. A strong initial burst of flavor followed by a round mid-palate, culminating in a long finish – it’s a complete wine that leaves a lasting impression. A gorgeous, classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet – powerful and well-balanced.
