94 Points/James Suckling
Black-olive and savory smoked-meat aromas, along with dried blueberry and walnut. It’s full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Dark chocolate adds to the savory flavors. Concentrated and focused. Try from 2023.
93 Points/Jeb Dunnuck
The base appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley succeeds wonderfully in the vintage, offering classic blue fruits, cassis, scorched earth, crushed stone, and tobacco-like aromas and flavors. This beauty is medium to full-bodied and has a seamless, elegant texture, remarkable balance, and a great finish. It can be drunk today with loads of pleasure but will benefit from a handful of years of bottle age and drink nicely for 15+ years.
93 Points/Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon rolls out of the glass with ready-for-business notes of freshly crushed black and red plums, Black Forest cake and ripe blackcurrants, plus suggestions of licorice, tar and new leather with a touch of wild sage. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with bold black fruit layers, framed by soft, velvety tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long with a compelling floral perfume coming through. Nicely done!
A blend of Alpha Omega's extensive vineyard holdings. Aromas of blueberry, boysenberry and caramel frame a tinge of alcoholic heat at the core. The palate is red-fruited and soft with relatively subtle tannins, showing flavours of blackberry, cranberry and baking spices. A full-throttle overview of the Napa Valley.
