Perliss The Ravens 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Net priced wine - no further discounts.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our single, estate vineyard. Yields are kept down and organically farmed to achieve the best expression of the fruit. The grapes are hand-harvested and naturally fermented with the vineyard’s indigenous yeast. The 2018 vintage has beautiful structure, fine but present tannin, and is highly age-worthy. The 2018 RAVENS is a blend of the same juice aged in two different vessels for almost two years: 80% French oak barrels made by small-production coopers, and 20% Tuscan terra-cotta amphora. It is bottled unfiltered and unfined. While approachable now, the tannins innate to their wine would benefit from aging and promise a long drinking window. The bottles are hand-dipped in a soft wax, whose color recalls the bark of the beloved Manzanita trees that characterize our Calistoga landscape.
Taste - Plum, cherry, nutmeg, cocoa, espresso.
