2016

Meteor Vineyard is the finest site in Coombsville, consistently producing incredibly succulent, intense wines with great purity of sleek, dark fruit. We build this wine in the vineyard, pinpointing the leanest soils and highest elevation points in our two clonal parcels and harvesting them earlier than the lower-lying, heavier soil areas. This precise, targeted farming and harvesting allow us to draw out all the special nuances of this magical site to maximize the elements that make this cool-climate Cabernet such an intriguing proposition. Ultimately, this is a wine with so much deliciousness it’s hard to resist.

Vinous

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Meteor Vineyard is a stunning wine endowed with tremendous vertical lift, explosive energy and pure power, all signatures of this highly regarded Coombsville site. Dark fruit, leather, smoke, tobacco, crushed rocks and incense all develop in the glass, but it is the wine's structural feel that stands out most. Simply put, the 2016 Meteor is unforgettable. Drinking window: 2023-2036.
