    Futo Red 2016
    5500
    Bottle (11)

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

    "The 2016 5500 is tremendous. Powerful, dense and explosive in the glass, the 2016 possesses superb elegance from the very first taste. Crushed rocks, lavender, mint, violet and crème de cassis all run through this magnificent, super-expressive Stags Leap Cabernet. All the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 is a positively stunning wine, arrestingly beautiful wine with tons of pedigree. Don't miss it!" (99 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct. 2018)

    "This wine comes from a vineyard planted in 1986 at 150 to 300 feet in elevation. Blended of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 5500 comes charging out of the gate with vibrant kirsch, lavender, candied violets and mulberries scents over a blackcurrant and black cherry core plus earthy wafts of tilled soil, mossy bark and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the energetic red and black fruit flavors and finely framed by super ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and savory. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered. 462 cases produced." (98 pts. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Dec. 2018)
