Compared to the Filius, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is like night and day. Sure, it includes some sage, bay leaf and tobacco shadings, but here the emphasis is on elegant blackcurrant aromas and flavors. A touch of cedar adds structure and delineation to the medium to full-bodied palate, but pure cassis takes over on the long, silky finish. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, it's approachable now, yet it has the concentration and enough tannin to think it will drink well for at least another decade.
