    Futo Red 2016

    Bottle (12)

    The Taxedout Cellar. A collection of CA Cult gems. Pristine in every way and stored perfectly in an offsite wine facility.

    "This wine comes from Futo's Oakville estate: six separate vineyard sites at 250 to 500 feet in elevation planted on decomposed sandstone and shale from ancient uplifted seabed. The first vintage was 2004. The 2016 Proprietary Red Estate is blended of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly unfurls to offer wonderfully savory notions of smoked meats, sautéed herbs, tapenade and truffles over a core of warm cassis, blackberry pie and kirsch plus suggestions of tilled soil, fallen leaves and espresso. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house, the lithe, muscular fruit is tightly intertwined with loads of mineral and savory nuances plus a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and incredibly layered. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered; 658 cases were made." (98+ pts. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Dec. 2018)
