N.138 is sourced from the same producer as N.80 2018 "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. A month or so after I purchased the other Cabernet Sauvignon's, they came to me with a tiny "Reserve" Lot comprised of 35% of the same wine in N.80 Reserve Cabernet plus 65% of their "Estate Reserve" Cabernet (which sells for north, and I mean way north, of $100/bottle). Deep, dark and tantalizing, I was immediately smitten. I did consider blending this into the N.80 for a bit more stuffing (which we hadn't bottled yet due to harvest) but it was an easy decision to keep it separate.
Quick side note: the Estate Lot is 100% Calistoga Cabernet and the other a mix of Calistoga and St. Helena so it comes in just under the 85% requirement for Sub-AVA status; hence, the Napa Valley AVA.
Deep ruby, almost opaque in the glass. Bottled 1/27, so its pretty shocky right now but you can see the wine one layer at a time. Right out of the bottle pretty raspberry and cherry poke out of the abyss but quickly recede as the aromas darken and cocoa-dusted Santa Rosa plums come to the fore. Silky on the palate with elegant, lifted acidity masking chewy tannins. Once those unfurl, chocolate-covered cherries and graham cracker notes echo throughout the long, superbly-balanced finish with hints of clay and dark earth keeping things interesting.
Of course, this will all coalesce in the bottle. Look to crack these early next Fall. Surprisingly elegant for a largely Calistoga AVA-derived Cabernet Sauvignon.
