Opulent purple and red hues are present in this wine. Cassis, black plum, and anise aromas combine with subtle vanilla from the toasted oak. Juicy blackberry and black currant flavors mingle with black licorice, espresso, and toasted oak in this structured yet elegant cabernet sauvignon with velvety tannins.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 2% Merlot
92pts- James Suckling: A very pretty cabernet now with currant, chocolate, and mahogany aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and layered with soft, creamy-textured tannin that gives it form and interest. Hard not to drink now.
90pts- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is solid, offering a forward, blue-fruited, medium-bodied, moderately complex style with rock-solid purity of fruit, nicely integrated tannins, and a clean, lengthy finish. Enjoy this well-made, classic, varietal Cabernet over the coming 5-7 years.
