Reviews
• Jeb Dunnuck: 95 From a site not far from the Hourglass Vineyard, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Janzen Cloudy’s Vineyard is upfront and charming, with full-bodied notes of macerated black cherries, cedarwood, chocolate, and licorice. It’s a mouthfilling, sexy, opulent wine that grows with time in the glass, has solid mid-palate depth, building tannins, and a great finish. It doesn’t have the elegance of the top cuvées but packs serious fruit and pleasure. Drink it any time over the coming 15-20 years.
• Robert Parker: 95 (94-96) A barrel sample, the 2016 Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep purple-black color and vibrant nose of crushed black currants and black plums with hints of cedar, black soil, Ceylon tea and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm, muscular and offers wonderful tension, with buckets of expressive, freshly crushed black fruit flavors and wonderfully ripe tannins, finishing long.
