The 2016 Vintage of our Tandem Cabernet is our fourth from the McKenzie-Mueller Vineyard in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. This is a velvety wine with good intensity, great structure, good balance and firm tannins. It is a long persistent wine with a dark deep color. Aged for 26 months in 60 % New French oak barrels and 40% once used French oak.
The wine has aromas of black licorice, sage, orange zest, coconut, cigar box and flavors of mocha, dark chocolate, molasses, and a persistent orange zest finish.
