A deep ruby red, this wine shows classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of cedar, tobacco, and cocoa followed by a mix of currant, vanilla and fresh blackberry notes. The texture is smooth, supple and sleek in the mouth with firm tannins and fresh acidity. The palate is loaded with fresh dark fruits, plum, currants and hints of cinnamon and vanilla.
California’s 2018 was nearly picture-perfect growing season which began in late February. Spring was mild, with extended flowering yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained steady and warm throughout the growing season, without any significant heat spikes, making for a cool, unhurried harvest. Yields are being reported above average. There is a lot of optimism for quality in the 2018 vintage.
