Notes from the Winemaker
2018 was a mild year with average temperatures below normal, providing a warm and extended growing season without the heat spikes we have experienced in recent years. The fruit was able to naturally mature all the way to November in some blocks, resulting in rich and beautifully balanced wines.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Reviews and Accolades
Polished aromas of lovely ripe dark fruit and chocolatey spicy oak, with floral and herbal notes. An expressive and fresh palate with purity of fruit, juicy tannins, and a solid length. Approachable now and will age well.
92 Points/James Suckling
Lots of dried blackcurrant, dark chocolate and walnut on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Flavorful finish. Try from 2022.
90 Points/Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate sports a deep garnet-purple color, offering open-knit, fragrant notions of warm cassis, blackberry pie and boysenberries plus touches of clove oil, dark chocolate and violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with ripe, juicy black fruit, supported by ripe, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a floral note.
