45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. The 2012 Sixteen has the fruit, spice and earth that characterize Italic's signature blend. It has red fruits up front, held together by a lattice of oak spices. There is a creamy mid-palate, which might remind you of a warm chocolate tart drizzled with red fruit syrup. The finish is long with sweet, supple tannins. Enjoy some now buy hold on to a few bottles to see how the wine evolves over time.
