Flying Lady’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from the L’Attitude Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District captures the essence of this incredible vintage. A cooler August combined with protection provided by the Mayacamas mountains extended the growing season and let the grapes develop slowly which produced a highly aromatic wine. It’s loaded with dark current and plum fruits framed in sweet spices—it’s raw power meets pure elegance. This vintage has the stuffing of a wine from the famed 2013 vintage but with softer tannins and more approachability at this stage. The dark current and plum fruit is balanced to let savory and mineral notes peek through, giving it great clarity. Look for this wine to put on even more weight as it ages and be a great addition to your cellar whether you choose to hold or drink soon.
