Available for:
Aromas of vibrant red and black currants, blackberry, plum skin with a hint of black tea. Swirling brings up plum puree, cocoa powder and vanilla bean. The palate is juicy, offering fresh black fruits, black tea, a hint of crème de cassis and hardwood spice. The tannins are supportive and finely accentuate the vibrant loamy minerality on the finish.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot, all brought up in mostly French oak (38% new). Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a classic Cabernet nose of ripe darker currants fruits, tobacco, cedary herbs, and earth. Reminding me of a great Saint-Julien with its pure, elegant character, it's medium to full-bodied and has wonderful tannins, notable balance, and a great finish. It's a stunning Cabernet from this team that should have 15-20 years of prime drinking.

Broad-shouldered yet refined and polished, with expressive blackberry, savory bay leaf and stony mineral accents that build toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030. 4,000 cases made.

The beautiful 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon displays rich, dark fruit and chocolate flavors, good structure and salty undercurrents. Full-bodied and ready to enjoy over the next decade.

Slightly stewed and herbaceous in the glass, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a generous nose with layered fruit that sits apart from the herbs and oak essence. Full-bodied on the palate, the wine has a tannic edge that grips the gums followed by flavors of plum preserve over the spicy, lingering finish.
