Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage: 2018 - Size: 750 ml. - Type: RedThe nose of this wine is layered and multi-faceted, explodingwith savory aromas of cedar, coffee, bay laurel, eucalyptus,rosemary, pine/oak forest, chaparral, and sage, all lifted by acaptivating floral perfume redolent of iris and violets. Blue fruitaromas of blackberries and blueberries linger in the background,gradually evolving into notes of loam and clay. In the mouth, thewine shows its incredible energy and vibrancy, power anddensity. The flavors mirror the aromas of mouthwatering savorynotes reverberating with fresh acidity. The wine and the tanninsare dense, yet the tannins are super fine grained and resolveeffortlessly in the mouth.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Vine Hill Ranch and Sleeping Lady vineyards, the Cabernet Franc came from Diamond Mountain and the Petit Verdot is from the old Abreu Thorevilos vineyard (now called Ecotone). Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with classic cassis, warm plums and boysenberries scents plus nuances of violets, lavender, pencil lead and menthol with hints of crushed rock and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, framed by firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness with super intense black fruit and earthy layers, finishing long and mineral laced.
