2016 Anomaly Vineyards
Vintage Notes: The 2016 growing season started early, progressed evenly, and never faced any of the pitfalls of extreme cold or heat. The spring was moderately warm, allowing for healthy budbreak and even fruit set. In a nice change of pace, the summer lacked the heat spikes that can cause the vines to shut down and delay fruit maturation. August was cooler than normal, and the fall was warm - perfect for late season ripening - without being too hot. It was one of the finest growing seasons the Napa Valley has seen in a generation or longer.
Our 2016 Anomaly Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with dark fruit flavors and playful nuances of complexity. This vintage has intense structure but is overlaid with a beautifully silky and inviting texture. Everything is in its right place, and the wine builds seamlessly on your palate. Although the wine can be appreciated for its power and purity now, it will certainly benefit from a few more years of cellaring and will age gracefully for decades.
