Koomilya CP Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The nose on Koomilya CP Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is of typical red current and cassis to begin, then bramble finishing with sumac, rose hip, cranberry, and mahogany. The palate is a perfectly ripe cabernet with no herbaceous character. It is open, opulent, and generous without being overdone. This wine has beautifully smooth tannins.
A vintage of distinct halves. Winter & Spring were exceptionally dry & warm, with irrigation beginning earlier than can ever recall. However, a number of rainstorms quickly changed everything replenishing soil moisture and setting up for a mild harvest. The interesting thing about 2016 is the profound tannin and the similarity to 2006 and 1996.
