A must buy. Impressive depth with really convincing freshness is the first impression; the dark berries are laced with notes of violet flowers and chocolate. The palate is succulent and full of verve with ripe concentrated dark cherries and berries, carried on long, silky tannins. All class. Drink or hold.

Winemaker Notes
Marked by its purity and opulence, the 2016 Grand Passage is an epic Cabernet with an opaque-black color, and effusive aromas of blackberry, marionberry, huckleberry, graham cracker pie crust and black licorice. Lush and hedonistic on the palate, its considerable weight is beautifully balanced by tremendous polish and supple, fine-grained tannins that enrobe voluptuous flavors of brambly berry, dark chocolate and cigar leaf, all of which glide to a long and seamless finish.
Production
The 2016 growing season will likely be one of the stars of the decade. Marked by deep color, generous richness, and fine-grained tannins, the 2016 Cabernets benefited from an unusually long growing season. An early bud-break, above-average spring rainfall, and warm spring temperatures were followed by mild summer and fall weather. This ensured a slow and steady harvest, with the grapes achieving ideal physiological ripeness after enjoying abundant hangtime. As a result, the wines offer beautifully supple textures and lovely aromatics, with noteworthy complexity, freshness and weight.
