The 2018 vintage is simply spectacular. This wine begins with wonderful purple color and aromatics that speak in the blue fruit spectrum. Blackberries and blueberries, and jammy notes fill the senses. As this wine opens up, the background notes of French Oak vanillin and earth come forth. This is a true Cabernet expression. Great fruit, mid-palate, body, and streaming length; it’s all in there! The palate is polished and sophisticated. Cranberry, black currant, blackberry, and black cherry are all intertwined. The acid and tannin balance is promising. This wine will drink its best from 2021 through 2035.
