2016

A Cabernet Sauvignon derived from the most select barrels at the Estate, Mockingbird is organically farmed in the eastern Oakville mountains at 1,400 feet—an elevation well above the fog line—producing a wine of power, elegance, and longevity. With each sip, this wine tells the story of a boy who grew up among the vines, was schooled by the soil, and devoted his craft to sharing his Napa Valley home one glass at a time.

In the glass, generous aromas of dried lavender and red currant float upward. Flavors of freshly tilled soil, blueberry preserve, and graphite surround a core of tannins that elegantly extend on the palette. Warm plum and cigar box linger pleasantly on the finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Comprised of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot, the 2016 Proprietary Red Mockingbird Blue has a deep garnet-purple color and spills sensuously out of the glass with seductive notes of blackcurrant cordial, blueberry pie, fruitcake and licorice with suggestions of molten chocolate, spearmint, hoisin and Chinese five spice. Big, rich, full-bodied and decadently spicy in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy frame and a very long, layered finish.
