2016 Celani Family Vineyards 'Ardore’ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Rivaling the quality and excellence of the 2015 Ardore, this 2016 vintage release represents the sophistication and pedigree of the Coombsville AVA in Napa Valley.
This Cabernet sings vibrantly and effusively from the glass with
aromas of inky, ripe boysenberries and blueberries, mocha and
violets. Winding through these powerful notes are gestures of
black cardamom, fresh suede and Ceylon cinnamon. Possessing all
of the hallmarks of a powerfully concentrated Napa Valley
Cabernet with elegant and savory flavors that are seamlessly
balanced and integrated with fine grained tannins and a finish that
Vinous - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Ardore is a bold, dramatic wine. The rich, unctuous style that is such a Celani and Mark Herold signature is nicely complemented by the underlying minerality of Coombsville. The dark cherry, plum, rose petal and white chocolate flavors are kicked up a few notches in a flamboyant, head-turning wine that demands attention."
Wine Spectator - "This pumps blackberry, plum and black currant compote flavors along, accented by ample sweet toast and chocolate notes. Features enough juicy energy to persist through the finish, where the fruit dominates easily. Drink now through 2027. 345 cases made."
