Aged 20 months in 60% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Illusionist has a Bordeaux like weight and richness as well as impressive notes of creme de cassis, toasted spice, graphite, and lead pencil. It's not massive yet is medium to full bodied, with good acidity and ripe yet present tannins, all of which give it a focused, brilliantly balanced style on the palate. Give the bottle another 2 3 years and I suspect it will evolve gracefully for two decades.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.

To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
