Opulent, jewel-tone red hues present in this wine. Ripe blackberry and dried plum combine with exotic anise and clove aromas on the nose. Flavors of black licorice and deep raspberry complement distinct notes of toasted oak and smoky mocha. This is a highly structured Cabernet Sauvignon with luxurious, round tannins.
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot
A very pretty cabernet now with currant, chocolate and mahogany aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and layered with soft, creamy-textured tannin that gives it form and interest. Hard not to drink now.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is solid, offering a forward, blue-fruited, medium-bodied, moderately complex style with rock-solid purity of fruit, nicely integrated tannins, and a clean, lengthy finish. Enjoy this well-made, classic, varietal Cabernet over the coming 5-7 years.
