92 Wine Spectator - Juicy and forward, with enticing plum, boysenberry and plum compote flavors. Light licorice threads stitch up the finish, along with a flash of sweet spice.
2018 marks yet another excellent vintage for the Napa Valley. The near-perfect weather conditions and generous length of this vintage allowed our Cabernet Sauvignon to come into perfect ripeness at a leisurely pace, resulting in the even development of acidity and a fuller expression of place.
92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot and 1% Malbec. Dusted blackberries, plums, and dark fruit tones coalesce into a wide expanse of engaging freshness and vibrancy. Creamy tannins tell a story of a layered and complex wine. Brilliant raspberry reduction, Rainier cherry, and cassis unfold in waves through the mid-palate to its impressive, well-tiered finish. The 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is truly symphonic in its progression of flavor, density, power, and lift.
