2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
90 points – GOLD MEDAL – Highly Recommended
This wine is rich and dark in the glass with aromas of old leather and blackberry. It is a full-bodied wine with long velvety tannins that will gain even more complexity as time passes.

The 2018 growing season began with a cool winter, and just enough rain to
replenish the vineyards. A temperate spring followed by mild weather
throughout the summer allowed the grapes to ripen at a very measured pace,
mother nature has given us another consecutive vintage of stellar quality. This Napa Valley Cabernet sets the standard for quality and will age beautifully for the next 15 years. Aged for 14 months in 30% new French oak barrels, then we keep it 14 months in the bottle before we release the wine. Enjoy this gem. Only 547 cases produced. SALUTE!
