The 2018 vintage shows characteristics that are rich and sophisticated on the nose with currant, black cherry, cedar and eucalyptus, and displays undertones of briary blackberry and wet gravel. Ancillary aromas of coffee and cocoa are rounded out nicely with notes of crushed sage and baking spice. Full bodied and formidable on the palate, offering enticing and juicy wild blackberry, Oregon blueberry and crisp black cherry flavors. Hints of plum and mulberry are accentuated with fig, black olives and fine leather. Excellent structure and harmony between the pure fruit core and firm, supple backbone of polished tannins. Finish is surprisingly elegant for a wine of such power. Silky and smooth, ending on lovely notes of sweet cherry and boysenberry.

  • v90-91

Shimmering ruby-red. Lively cherry and black currant aromas show a primary jamminess and take on floral and woodsmoke notes with air. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Smoke and tobacco nuances come up on a long, smooth finish that's given gentle grip by round, even tannins.

Checking in at 13.9% natural alcohol, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is outstanding, with a forward, charming yet also structured style. Classy notes of cassis, currants, and violets all emerge from the glass, and it's already drinking beautifully.
