Robert Parker 97 Points: “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon MMXIII is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon (86%), Malbec (9%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and ripe blackberries, plus hints of menthol, violets and dark chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is jam-packed with juicy black fruits and is wonderfully plush, featuring a lively backbone with loads of spiciness coming through on the long finish..”
Winery Notes: “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate vineyard in the eastern reaches of Napa Valley captures the best qualities of this special vintage—dark, intensely colored, highly aromatic, silky, and long. With each vintage, we are unlocking more of the character of our land. This place has a story to tell, and 2018 is a year where the details and intricacies are fully revealed. The color is black-purple, with a brilliance around the edges that hints at brightness and nuance. The aromas are incredibly expressive, with notes of chocolate, sandalwood, and campfire mingling with fresh fruit notes of black currant and huckleberry. The texture of the wine is broad and expansive, with plenty of tannins to help the wine age, but with a polish and focus that makes the wine immediately enjoyable. All of the elements are there, and will certainly evolve in the bottle over many years, even decades.”
