I absolutely love the 2016 vintage reds and this wine for that matter. Only the second release of Flying B but a huge step up and I couldn’t be happier! Immediately seductive aromatically with red raspberry, blueberry, cedar, menthol and tobacco. The addition of Syrah to the mix has given this wine such a complex and harmonious character that these blocks were missing. Warmer, more tannic sites like Bob Healy and Seven Hills have been completely balanced out now with the cooler, softer and more seductive Lefore Cabernet Sauvignon and Loess Syrah. Large weight on the mouthfeel but incredibly silky soft in tannin and a super long and lingering finish. Drink now through 2028 if you can wait that long! ~Josh McDaniels, Winemaker
