2016 TAMBER BEY DEUX CHEVAUX VINEYARD RABICANO

$70.00 $56.99 $56.99

I focus on a vineyard’s location when describing a wine, because the origin of the grapes can often be the single most important element that imparts a chance at greatness.  Tamber Bey’s Deux Chevaux Vineyard in Yountville is in a prime location that’s across the river from Kapcsandy where there’s no shortage of 100 Point wines being produced.  It’s also near the revered Ghost Block Vineyard where greatness seems to flow from the earth.  This fruit was given a voice by winemaker Andy Jones, who began working alongside winemaker Thomas Brown in 2008, and Brown is still their consulting winemaker.  Those of you that have tasted any of their earlier vintages know how great this wine is for the price… If you tasted this wine blind you’d think you’re tasting a $100 Yountville Cab…
A stunning display of power and restraint, the 2016 Rabicano is classically Yountville and with a palpable sense of place.  The wine was built around a solid core of nearly 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and incorporates all five of the top Bordeaux Varietals.  Kept for nearly 20 months in French oak barrels, the 2016 possesses a velvety richness laden in sweet blackberries, red plum, white chocolate, baking spices and hints of blue fruits.  If you love beautifully detailed reds with a true sense of place, balance and persistent flavors, this one is definitely for you.

Description

2016 TAMBER BEY DEUX CHEVAUX VINEYARD RABICANO 

From James Suckling, “An impressive blend of 69 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 22 per cent merlot with touches of malbec, petit verdot and cabernet franc, that delivers focused dark-fruit aromas, ahead of a core of ripe blackcurrants that surround a smooth, central core of plush, fine tannins. Balanced and flavorful. Drink or hold.” 93 Points
