93 Points from James Suckling

Although this is a dense and ripe Napa cabernet, there are hints of fresh herbs and blood oranges that lift the ripe blackberry, plum and citrus aromas. On the palate, the bitter-chocolate character is more discreet than in many modern-style wines and nicely sets off the generous fruit and supple tannins. The long, fresh finish is supported by restrained tannins.

 

92+ Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Animo is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with a waft of cedar chest, giving way to notes of baked blackberries, crème de cassis, espresso and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it has taut, muscular fruit and a firm, rugged frame, finishing a little firm.

 

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of cocoa nibs, turmeric, suede and broken mixed berries perfume the wine, while notes of fresh, red currant and blackberry nuances combine for a bright acidity that is followed by a rounded texture and nicely structured yet plush tannins. The 2016 Animo Cabernet Sauvignon is a generous wine, with complex and elegant layers of flavor.
