Product Overview

The 2016 Alpha Omega ERA Cabernet Sauvignon is the winery's flagship wine. It pours the color of deep red-black Cassis liqueur with touches of fuchsia on the rim. On the nose, there's a beautiful interplay between rocks and ripe fruit, with nuances of plum tart, macerated cherries, dark chocolate, lavender, cedar and fresh herbs. On the palate, the silky entrance evolves to a dense structure with blueberries, black cherries, and boysenberries lingering on white flowers and chocolate candy.

98 Points - Wine Advocate
"Made entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon ERA is very deep purple-black colored and sashays out of the glass with gorgeous cassis, black cherries, wild blueberries and kirsch scents plus hints of cedar chest, tobacco, black olives, violets and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited with firm yet plush tannins and seamless freshness, it finishes with epic length and depth. 1,200 cases produced." -LPB, 2/28/19

95 Points - Vinous
"The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon ERA is positively stunning in 2016. In fact, this may be the most complete and satisfying vintage of the ERA I have ever tasted. Readers should expect an opulent, hedonistically ripe wine. Even with all of its overt power, the 2016 is nuanced and absolutely impeccable in its balance. This is a gorgeous showing." -AG, Dec/2018

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This blends grapes from several marquee vineyards across the valley, all varietal. Bold and bursting in dried herb, graphite and dust, it dazzles in supple blue fruit, cassis and black licorice, its core of full-bodied richness entirely integrated, seamless and graceful on the lengthy, spicy palate." -VB, 5/1/20
