2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cellar Note
Hailing from the Mayacamas Mountain range in Sonoma Valley, this Cabernet Sauvignon charts the beginning of our journey to uncover unique terroir that highlights the classic side of the varietal. The 2018 growing season was marked by steady weather and a cooler August. This gave way to a full canopy which provided balanced flavors and higher natural acidity.
A lifted nose of violets, cigar box and herbs de Provence emerge from the glass, followed by hints of blackberry and cedar. Raised in 55% new oak for 18 months, this Cellar Note Cabernet has a weighted palate, silky tannins, and a plush finish. The concentration strikes a lovely balance between tannin and acid that points to a steady road ahead for aging, however it is also particularly delicious today.
