2016 Bookwalter Protagonist
The 2016 Protagonist is a bold Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a little Cabernet Franc and Syrah to round out the wine. Deep red in color, it shows brooding aromatics of blackberries, cassis, black currant, and exotic wood. Flavors of rich dark fruit and Italian espresso come through on the palate. Plush, silky tannins carry through to the finish of this reserve Cabernet.
James Suckling 93
This offers a fresh array of bright red berries, as well as a floral edge to the nose. Quite dense and concentrated in the mouth with slightly tangy acidity that holds boysenberry and mulberry flavors fresh. Smooth yet defined tannins. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator 93
Combines power and grace, with a deeply structured core wrapped in expressive blackberry, licorice and smoked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2027.
Wine Enthusiast 91
Fresh herb, green pepper and roasted coffee bean aromas are out front. Ripe black fruit and herb flavors follow. Coffee notes linger on the finish. It’s a rich, hedonistic, high octane example of the variety.
