2016 Black List XX Magnum

 Approaching a mysterious opacity with its deeply dark ruby hues, Black List XX, our opening release for 2020, (and twentieth Black List wine produced in series), is envisioned to be a fitting tribute to the very first wine released under this imprimatur back in 2013. Then, as in now, we are pleased to present this selection as a quintessential example of our winemaking philosophy. Note: for this and among subsequent Black List releases, we will be proud to feature additionally favored single-appellation wines for your anticipated enjoyment.
Vibrant with aromas of black fruit, rose petal, pipe tobacco, and cherry cola, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon shows off the glories emanating from the vintage’s exceptional growing season. Exuberant and expressive on the attack, the wine’s volume and density are notable, revealing nuanced flavors of blackberry, cassis, along with hints of wild raspberry, sweet oak, graphite, and baking spices. Featuring fine supple tannins and a pleasing acidity through the mid-palate, the wine finishes with resolve, …and a wink to the vineyard’s colorful founder and friend, John (F’ing!) Caldwell.
