Notes: 2018 was a seamless year, devoid of the many challenges faced by grape growers in Napa Valley this past decade. 2018 is known as one of the best, recent vintages, along side 2016. Through minimal intervention wine making, this Cabernet shows opulence and elegance with ripe fruit on the fore front of the pallet, rolling into a depth of complex flavors before a long, silky finish with well structured but not over powering tannins. This is a wine that will pair well with meals, yet has the strength to stand alone. While it is drinking well now, over time its complexity will grow, most likely peaking around 10-12 years.
