Maxville Lake Winery 'Maxville' Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Review

This is a solid wine. It’s not showing it’s true awesome yet, but drinking well. You can tell it wants to shed more of its austerity (tannin) and show more fruit. Right now, it’s all about steak with this bottle. In a year or so it’ll be a little more versatile (maybe a cheese plate and good convo). This is a great bottle to gift a friend, or to buy a couple of and watch it evolve.
