The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant and nuanced from the very first taste. Over the last year, the 2018 has developed from a powerhouse into a much more refined wine. There is plenty of mountain tannin and structure, but those elements are completely enrobed by the fruit. Hints of iron, cedar, dried herbs, mint and sweet red cherry fruit emerge with a bit of time in the glass. The 2018 is a very rare, quintessentially elegant mountain Cabernet. Best of all, the 2018 won't take years to come together. I would drink it ahead of the 2016 or 2017, but if opened young it needs several hours of aeration.

98 James Suckling -

Blackcurrants and flowers, such as roses and lilacs, together with some pine needles. Medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins that are linear and creamy. Wonderful length, focus and intensity. Racy and intense. Incredible structure. Sophisticated mountain wine. 98% cabernet sauvignon, 1% petit verdot and 1% malbec. Needs five to six years to come around.
