Luke Wahluke Slope Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Wahluke Slope|
Aromas of fresh raspberry, bittersweet chocolate and dried herb pop on the nose. The palate is ripe, delicious, fruit filled and lip-smacking, displaying a lot of density, intensity and texture. Give this beauty a short decant if drinking in the near term.
A snappy and vibrant Cabernet, with blackberry, fresh basil and espresso accents that build toward the zesty finish. Drink now through 2027.
More dark fruits and leafy herb notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, another value-priced effort with medium-bodied richness, impeccable balance, light tannins, and loads of charm. I don't think it's going to make old bones, but it will certainly have a solid 4-6 years of prime drinking.
