97+ points Wine Advocate: "Wow, this is an absolutely gorgeous wine that delivers exceptional intensity followed by compelling complexity. The bouquet on the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Maestro Raro peels back to reveal thick layers of red fruit, spice and tobacco. Despite the full weight approach of the mouthfeel, this wine maintains a deep inner sense of elegance all the while. It is still very highly wound and nervous at this young moment in its life and is going to need extra time to un- wind and achieve final harmony. All the necessary elements (complexity, balance, freshness and stricture) are amply present to guide the wine into the future. It should be exciting to follow its evolution over the next few decades."
Classically Cab and also classically Tuscan. In past tastings of Washington and Napa Cabs, this out-shown the competition.
