2016 COMPANION
53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Syrah

2016 COMPANION

Jeb Dunnuck says,

"A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Syrah, the 2016 Companion shows the fresh, pure, balanced style of the vintage beautifully. Notes of cassis, chocolate, damp earth, and leafy herbs give way to a medium to full-bodied, fresh, focused effort that has the Cabernet Sauvignon front and center. It’s going to be better with another year or two of bottle age and keep for a decade. A portion of the Cabernet Sauvignon in this cuvée comes from the Happy Canyon region of Santa Barbara County, hence its release under the Central Coast appellation." 93+ Points

53% Cabernet Sauvignon & 47% Syrah

180 cases produced

An alluring dark ruby colored wine with aromas of cedar, fresh wood shavings, star anise, dark cherries, ripe plum and hints of coco that leap from the glass. A beautifully powerful wine on the palate with youthful and lingering tannins coupled with big rich fruit characters. This wine marries the expressive characters of Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully with darker rich aspects of Syrah creating a perfect match in the glass. This wine is very enjoyable now but with time will further round into a mature and stately wine to enjoy and show off for years to come. Drink now through 2031.
