2016 Proprietor's Reserve The Point
Our 2016 Point is a gorgeous, harmonious blend. 5 different varietals, playing nicely and contributing to the effort. While Cabernet Sauvignon is in the main driver at 31%, not one single varietal overtly asserts its presence in this wine. Rather, each varietal lends its strength in support of the composition. The color is a dense, garnet red in the glass. The initial aromatic notes are rich and warm with hints of malted chocolate. As you continue to inhale, beautiful, dark fruit notes intertwined with those of medium toasted French Oak fill your senses. This wine is juicy and supple on the mid-palate with a finely grained tannin structure bolstering the presentation through a graceful finish. As the 2016 aerates, the tannins trend towards an elegant chalkiness leaving no mystery about the soil composition in which the grapes were grown. Having been in bottle for over a year this wine is drinking quite beautifully. However, if you prefer a little age on your Bordeaux blends, this wine will evolve over the next 5 – 7 years.
