Dark purple all the way to the rim, the wine opens with aromas of creosote, blackberries, espresso roast and toast. Now fully recovered from bottling, it has picked up density and weight adding a rich blueberry core to the palate complemented by baker's chocolate, tobacco and licorice.

Moving to the barrel samples, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon should be snatched up by savvy readers. Sporting a deep purple hue as well as full-bodied aromas and flavors of cassis, violets, and tobacco, it's a step up over the 2017 and has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a terrific sense of opulence as well as freshness.

Lush and fruit-filled, with crushed plum, steeped raspberry and warmed cassis notes rolled together, carried by a well-embedded graphite spine. A swath of warm, dark earth cruises through on the finish, but leaves center stage to the fruit. Best from 2021 through 2031. 3,000 cases made.
