The 2016 Biserno is a softly textured wine with enormous richness, plushness and softness. The bouquet opens to profound depth with thick layers of dark fruit, sweet spice, chocolate, tar and camphor ash. Biserno is a large-frame, full-bodied blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. This vintage delivers enormous precision, grace and sharpness; however, the lasting impression it leaves is one of power, opulence and irresistible concentration. This wine speaks generously to all the senses, and to your heart.

Aromas of cedar, cassis, camphor and oak-driven spice are front and center on this fragrant, full-bodied red. On the precise, savory palate, firm, elegant tannins offer polished support for juicy red berry, licorice and tobacco while fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's young but already shows an impressive depth of flavors. Drink 2021–2031.
