The Tench vineyard is farmed so well that whenever we have good weather (or amazing weather as in 2016), the quality really shines through. I believe Jeb Dunnuck perfectly described our 2016 Cabernet when he awarded it 98 points:
“Even better than the blockbuster 2015, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard offers incredible purity and precision paired with full-bodied power and richness. Thrilling notes of blueberries, liquid violets, and tons of crushed rock and minerality all flow to a ripe, sexy, seamless Cabernet Sauvignon that does everything right. A wine of incredible poise and stature, it has enough tannin to warrant 2-4 years of bottle age and is a 20- to 30-year wine."
