2016 Akrasia Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Line of Fire Vineyard

96 CASES PRODUCED

2016 was another excellent vintage for Northern California. A warm spring resulted in an early harvest. Warm days and cool nights yielded near perfect growing conditions. Like 2015, crop levels were significantly lower in 2016 resulting in increased concentration and intensity.  This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has a complex palate of black cherries, caramel and dark plums with wonderful aromas of wild berries, redcurrants and spice.

“I’ve been saying it for years; valley-floor California Cab is overcooked (a fault of the winemaker or Robert Parker, not Mother Nature) and overpriced. Give me the mid-palate subtlety of Cab, the gooey milk chocolate and soft peppermint. This is the closest thing I have had (from California) to Pichon Longueville or Pauillac in ages, elegant and restrained in its opulence.”

-Mark Buckley, Sommelier
