2016 G-III

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Fairchild G-III is heavenly juice. Seeing an extended maceration and 20 months in 80% new French oak, it boasts awesome notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, crushed rocks, and violets. This all flows to a blockbuster styled beauty that has fabulous purity, fine, silky tannins, and incredible opulence paired with purity and elegance. This beauty got more than a few “wow” comments in the notes and should keep for two decades or more. Drink 2019-2039.





The Fairchild 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon G-III is deep garnet-purple in color, with a beautiful nose of crushed blackberries, red currants, black cherry compote and cassis with nuances of lilacs, fragrant earth, forest floor and black tea plus touches of menthol and coffee grounds. Full-bodied, rich, bold and super concentrated in the mouth, the palate features firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to give a solid structure to all that fruit, finishing very long and very layered.
