Santa Cruz Mountains
2016 Lexington Apex
The 2016 Apex is essentially the best four barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon off the property. Explosive, powerful, and tannic.
The 2016 Vintage was another drought year, with early bud-break, bloom, and veraison. Poor weather during the early bloom caused shatter and millerandage. Vine stress became an issue late in the year with many of our dry-farmed vines showing water and nutrient stress for the first time. The resulting wines are bright and energetic with mid-weight personalities. They are profoundly aromatic and balanced wines that are site expressive and pure.
