Includes one bottle of each:
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is rich and full-bodied on the palate, showing lovely aromas of ripe raspberry, cassis, espresso bean, tobacco leaf, cigar box, black licorice, cedar, cumin, and fennel. As it opens up in the glass, we are met with inviting flavors of dark blueberries and cherries, along with beautiful cinnamon spice and sweet cocoa mix. A wine with incredible depth and density, along with power and concentration that is balanced with freshness across the finish.
These grapes were whole-cluster pressed (no saignée) to extract as little color as possible and preserve the freshness and crispness of the fruit. Light, stunningly elegant rose gold in color, with aromas of rose petals, crisp pears, melon, pomelo, pink lady apple skins, and spice. An elegance of stone fruits with great freshness glides across the whole palate, with perfect white peach, Rainier cherries, nectarines, and crushed rocks to round out the exceptionally clean and crisp finish.
Asian pear and Fuji apple dominate on the nose upfront, cedar, butterscotch, and vanilla complement in the background with hints of cardamom and coconut flake. This vintage spent 2 months in stainless steel before bottling to accentuate the freshness of a great vintage with cooler than normal conditions allowing for longer hang time for flavor development, the steely and mineral flavors linger on the finish.
