A wine of great energy, length, and finesse, 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with floral notes, cedar and pencil shavings followed by ripe blackberry, cassis and red currant jam. Fresh and focused with pleasing acid and tannin structure building tension along the palate to the lingering finish.

Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals vivacious notions of crushed black currants, red currant jelly, fresh blackberries and Morello cherries with touches of garrigue, bay leaves, damp soil and cedar chest. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and charged with energy, featured loads of crunchy black and red fruit plus a refreshing backbone, finishing on an appealing chewy note.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is similarly colored and has terrific notes of crème de cassis, ground herbs, earth, and tobacco. It's fresh, medium-bodied, has good concentration, beautiful balance, and fine tannins.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) shows just how compelling this mainstay Cabernet can be in a favorable vintage. Explosive aromatics and vibrant fruit fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. The 2018 is rich, sumptuous and flat-out delicious. Lavender, spice, plum, leather and dried herbs add layers of complexity.
