Kata 2016 Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

The 2016 Kata reveals yet another glimpse of the full potential of the Bourn Vineyard. The texture is velvety with tons of energy and vibrancy revealing delicate, fully mature tannins. The bouquet is a complex expression of blue and blackberries wrapped into lavender and Provencal herb notes with a backbone of cassis, chocolate and licorice.

"From a rocky site just next to the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, on the outskirts of St. Helena, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard incorporates a solid chunk of Petite Sirah and was brought up in plenty of new oak. It offers a deep, powerful bouquet of blackberry and blueberry fruits as well as loads of graphite, pen inky, violets, burning embers, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, ultra-pure, multi-dimensional, and incredibly layered, it's a pure, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that would pass undetected in a blind lineup of top wine from the Graves region of Bordeaux. It's going to evolve gracefully for 20+ years."

"Kata's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard is absolutely gorgeous. Dark, ample and super-concentrated, the 2016 possesses superb depth not to mention tremendous pedigree. Inky blue and purplish berry fruit, licorice, spice, menthol and hard candy infuse this super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2016, the blend leans more heavily towards Cabernet Sauvignon than it has been in the past as some of the newer Cabernet plantings make it into the wine. As a result, the 2016 is not as distinctive as some previous editions, although it is hard to argue with the absolute quality of what is in the glass. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petite Sirah, aged in about 85% new oak."

James Suckling - 95 Points
"This is lean and bright with a solid core of blackberries, blueberries and hazelnuts. Full-bodied, foursquare and vivid. Shows the tightness and focus of the vintage. Drink now or hold."
