The Parker First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon has forged an outstanding reputation from its first vintage releases, its quality and consistency having earned it icon status in the region. The just released 2016 vintage saw a warm spell in early spring that led to early budburst. A generally dry and moderately-warm summer resulted in good berry development and ripening despite the earlier than normal start to the season.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon this vintage. From original Reynell Selection blocks (cuttings from pre-phylloxera Bordeaux) of the Abbey Vineyard planted in 1985. Extended maceration for enhanced tannin structure and ageing potential. The wine spends 18 months in new French oak barriques and hogsheads from Bordeaux cooperages.

A cabernet with a lengthy history of excellence. It is from a single vineyard planted in '85. The vines are fully mature, and the blackcurrant fruit revels in the generous proportion of new French oak allocated to it every year.
