Smith and Hook Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Ranked the #7 Red Wine in our Oct. 7, 2016 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event
A bouquet bursting with notes of dark fruit and hints of spice leads into a structured palate of bright plum, boysenberry, and cherry. The initial fruitiness is complemented by alluring notes of vanilla cream and rich cacao. Expansive avors and balanced tannins carry through to the smooth, lavish finish. The robust flavors are a great complement to braised short ribs, mushroom stroganoff, or a charred gruyere burger.

Wine EnthusiastAlways one of the more compelling bottlings for the price each year, this vintage shows deep plum, black cherry and vanilla on the welcoming nose. The mouthfeel is impressively thick and the firm texture quite gravelly, carrying flavors of black fruit, roast beef and black pepper.
Wine SpectatorMedium-bodied, with some roasted chicory accents to the dried berry and cherry flavors, ending with a spicy finish. Drink now. 84,000 cases made.
