Notes from the Winemaker
Rich and luxurious, this deep ruby-colored wine displays a lovely purity of fruit, with aromas of blackcurrant and boysenberry leading to notes of blueberry and a touch of dried herbs on the palate. Finely grained tannins and a backbone of graphite balance the plush black fruits, creating a silky mouthfeel with a smooth yet powerful finish. Sourced from select vineyards across Napa Valley, this wine beautifully encapsulates the entirety of the appellation.
This wine makes an excellent pairing alongside grilled skirt steak with shiso chimichurri.
Reviews and Accolades
93 Points/James Suckling
A juicy, fruity red with plum, blueberry, chocolate and some hazelnut. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a delicious finish. Always balanced and excellent quality.
91 Points/Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Napa Valley vineyard sources for the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley were spread all the way from Calistoga to Coombsville. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers bold, seductive scents of Black Forest cake, warm cassis and ripe black plums with hints of lavender, menthol and spice cake. The medium to full-bodied palate offers mouth-filling black fruit preserves flavors with a ripe, grainy texture and a long, spicy finish.
90 Points/Wine Spectator
Bright and direct, with a lively edge to the cassis and cherry reduction core that has good cut through the licorice-coated finish. Drink now through 2026.
