The acidity, tannins, and multitude of layers showcase notes of red currant, ripe red cherry, black pepper, and spices of nutmeg and clove. Hints of tobacco leaf, black tea leaf, plum, and dried cranberry round out the palate. A beautiful long-lasting finish.
96 Points – Jeb Dunnuck
Made by superstar winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon just about jumps from the glass with its gorgeous nose of blueberries, black cherries, flowery incense, green tobacco, and chocolate. This carries to a full-bodied, opulent, incredibly sumptuous Cabernet with sweet tannins, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish. This is one pleasure-bent, sexy 2018 I’d be thrilled to drink any time over the coming 15 years. And there’s no need to delay gratification.
