MEMENTO MORI Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2016

The 2016 Memento Mori is an absolutely fabulous wine from Sam Kaplan in this vintage. Sourced from Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Beckstoffer Las Piedras in St. Helena, along with two Oakville vineyards, Weitz Vineyard and for the first time Oakville Ranch. This fantastic Cabernet opens to stunning aromas of ripe blackberries, crème de cassis, violets, graphite, sweet spices and hints of sage all emerging from the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous full body with beautifully polished tannins and outstanding overall balance. Structured and concentrated with layers of ripe dark and blue fruits that are framed by a lovely touch of underlying acidity that provides wonderful lift and a sense of freshness as it heads into the the long polished finish. Overall, the 2016 is an absolutely sensational wine that captures the wonderful elements of the vintage and will go on to evolve gracefully for many years to come.
