The grapes are allowed to achieve full ripeness without the pressure of heat extremes common in warmer areas, and low vigor soils throughout the vineyard create small, dense clusters. With the addition of vibrant dark fruit from our preferred vineyard sources in St. Helena and on Howell Mountain, the resulting wine is expressive and evocative. Heralded by Robert Parker as one of the top nine winemakers in the world. Where possible, I will minimize winemaking techniques in the cellar so I can create a wine that tells the story of the vineyard.
In the end, it must be about the fruit. Moone Tsai is known for its commitment to Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, focussing on site-specific bottlings and delivering consistency and elegance. In this 2016 Napa Valley release, legendary winemaker Philippe Melka has crafted a muscular and compelling wine utilising the Caldwell Vineyard in Coombsville as a core - which brings energy and mineral notes due to its volcanic soils - combined with St Helena and Howell Mountain fruit for roundness.
The result is a complex and expressive wine screaming with red rose and violet aromas, delivering flavours of freshly roasted espresso with blue and red fruits, and a generous tannic structure. Drinking Window 2019 - 2030. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot, aged in 40% new French oak for 19 months, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is sporting tons of flamboyant cassis, warm plums and blueberry preserves notes with hints of mocha, lavender, menthol and iodine. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with a great intensity of black and blue fruits, finishing with a menthol lift.
