Wine Critic Jeb Dunnuck Awards Seavey’s 2016 Cab 98+ Points

Wine Critic Jeb Dunnuck has awarded the 2016 Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon 98+ points in his review “North Coast Part 1: Napa Valley’s Incredible 2016s” released January 31, 2019.

 

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Seavey Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (as with the ’14, ’15, and ’16) brought up in 62% new French oak. It’s a deep, powerful wine that has everything a classic Napa Cabernet lover could want. Notes of cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, and crushed rock all emerge from this beauty, which has a classic Pauillac-like austerity and style. Not for those seeking instant gratification, it’s going to benefit from 7-8 years of bottle age and have 35+ years of overall longevity.” 98+ points, Jeb Dunnuck, Jan. 2019.

Dunnuck also reviewed two Seavey Merlots—the 2016 (91 points) and 2006 (90 points) —as well as the 2016 Caravina Cabernet (94 points).
