From One Leap Year to Another
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 Syrah and 2016 Malbec have been hibernating in bottle for 16 months, post their 33 month slumber in neutral oak barrels.
"Meaty with a dusky mouthfeel, cola and dark chocolate, camphor, watercress, mushroom, lemongrass & seaweed.. ahh, what a life, to enjoy a simple existence," with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon in your hand. But halt, for the mighty Syrah, as it will "fill your mouth with oodles of dried plums wrapped in mordacious rosemary." Should you follow the sequence set forth by the powers at be, you will most definitely want to end this leap year journey with a "darker than fresh ink" Malbec, reminiscent of lip-smacking olallieberry and cassis juice.
