WSI95 WA95 The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Artefact is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon coming from Calistoga. Deep garnet-purple in color, it bursts from the glass with pronounced notes of crème de cassis, plum preserves, wild blueberries and boysenberries with underlying suggestions of cedar chest, menthol, fallen leaves and dusty soil. The palate possesses bags of energy, offering a medium to full-body with layers of bright, bold black fruits and a firm, grainy texture, finishing long and mineral laced.
JS94 A well-structured cabernet with aromas of blackberries, dried leaves, walnuts, toast and pine cones. Full-bodied yet fresh with fine-grained tannins. Savory, firm and mineral finish. Try after 2022.
