Winemaker Notes: After the trifecta of warmer-than-average growing seasons between 2013-2015, it was delightful to return to “normal” weather in 2016. It is a truly fantastic vintage. The only remarkable event was some rain about halfway through our harvest at FIGGINS, which ironically worked in our favor, softening the tannins of the Cabernet (the dominant grape in the blend) in an excellent way. As our Estate Red wine becomes known for its power and long-term aging ability, the 2016 highlights another fantastic characteristic of Figgins Estate Vineyard – much like the 2009 vintage, this wine exhibits immediate approachability and is absolutely delicious upon release. It’s hard for me to believe the 2016 represents our vines in their 13thleaf, but the high-quality results are really becoming evident as the vineyard gains complexity and class with every passing year.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Jeb Dunnuck - "Winemaker Chris Figgins has produced one of the wines of the vintage and his 2016 Estate Red Wine checks in as a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot that spent 23 months in 50% new French oak. It offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as a killer bouquet of crème de cassis, toasted spice, tobacco, and earth. Incredibly pure, full-bodied, and layered on the palate, it's a magical wine that has no hard edges, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's the finest wine under this label to date."


Vinous - "Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, cassis and sexy oak spices are lifted by a violet note on the nose. Densely packed but quite tight-grained, offering high-pitched flavors of currant, black raspberry, cocoa powder and spices. Terrific depth of flavor here as well as outstanding length. With its perfectly managed tannins, this wine really resounds and rises on the aftertaste. This may be the most approachable vintage upon release of this bottling to date but it's clearly built for a long evolution in the cellar."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2016 Estate Red Wine opens with a dense core of bold and juicy dark fruit aromas that overflow into the blueberry spectrum with mocha nuances. Full-bodied, the palate is chewy and has good mineral tension, giving way to elegant, balanced oak flavors and a tannic edge that is still rigid but will last for decades to come. The freshness and liveliness of the wine remain focused, and the wine lingers with a long, contemplative finish. With a 2,000 case production, this is one that is worth adding to your cellar."


Wine Enthusiast - "In this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot, the aromas are all about dark fruit, flower and spice, with notes of anise, blackberry jam, soil and black cherry as well as a generous pinch of spice following. Luscious, full and highly structured fruit flavors follow. The impressive acidity maintains balance. Its best years are far ahead of it. Open after 2025; it will have an easy decade or more of excellent drinking beyond that."


James Suckling - "This estate blend has a dark-cherry, blueberry and cassis nose with hints of iodine and Indian ink. The palate is so even, so long and so effortlessly balanced in 2016. Ripe yet fresh dark berries abound. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and merlot. Drink or hold."
