This shows the evolved character of Caiarossa, from an outstanding vintage in which the house style of opulence and volume does not cover its touches of elegance. With a few years of bottle age, the savory details have risen to meet the fruit, with notes of carmelizing fruit and walnut, forest floor, and musk. The texture is velvety and volume more restrained than in more unbalanced vintages.

JAMES SUCKLING 97 POINTS - "Very complex aromas of crushed berries, yet the fresh herbs, dried berries, sandalwood and Spanish cedar add complexity and brightness. Full-bodied with tannins that melt into the wine. Savory."

WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2016 Caiarossa will be released in September. This wine is a blend of seven grapes—42% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 15.5% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4.5% Sangiovese and 1% Alicante. This vintage sees a slightly higher percentage of Cabernet Franc than usual, but I am told that the 2018 edition will see more Syrah instead. The bouquet presents a beautiful first wave of dark fruit that pushes the limits of ripeness but remains safely within the realm of elegance. The aromas are balanced and focused with blackberry, cassis, and light touches of salty or rusty mineral. The wine is not too constructed or big in the mouth, rather is shows a delicate level of elegances that absolutely seals the deal."
