Wine Details & Tasting Notes

This is an absurd deal. With a history of consistent 90-92 pt scores from the Wine Spectator, Robert Parker, James Suckling as well as Decanter magazine, this delicious 2018 Cabernet is 69% Oakville Cabernet from the producers estate vineyard and 31% St. Helena Cabernet. Sourced from an Oakville estate winery with an original list price of well over $65/bottle, its a screaming deal at $25!

Dark/opaque in the glass with barely perceptible crimson on the rim. Black cherry, black currant, cigar box and fresh turned earth are framed against baking spice, dark chocolate and toasty oak. Generous yet seamless on the palate with layers of ripe plum and cherry framed against the ample grip of toasty, big-grained Oakville tannins. Tons of length in the finish with plenty of mouthwatering tension. This is an incredible Napa Valley Cabernet for $25/bottle!

Check-in tasting 6.23.21 - Mostly Oakville Cabernet. Lovely cassis aromas mix with old school brett/leather (this is the good brettanomyces, not the "band-aid" smell, but for the sensitive you'll want to avoid). Plentiful acidity needs time to calm down so, for now, enjoy with richer dishes. However, this wine is headed in a very good direction and patience is required.

Check-in Tasting 1/14/2022 - Oh my! This wine has arrived - beautifully complexed aromas with layers of cherry and cassis mingle with brown sugar, vanilla, anise, and savory notes of soy, dark earth. Bright and vibrant on the front of the palate and the spice and earth evolves and complexes throughout the palate.
