Thanks to an excellent set, early fruit stability, and true ripeness, the 2018 Pulido~Walker Melanson Vineyard Cabernet is an exemplary wine. It is intensely colored, with framing acidity and tons of structure. This vineyard does best with a long hang time-the longer we get to ripen the tannin, the better the result. 2018 is a prime example of what we're aiming for with well-integrated tannins, including a somewhat expansive mid palate and no clipping of the finish. All the flavor hallmarks of the vineyard are on display here, from deeply saturated black fruits to crushed rock to even more of the high-toned white flower component we've come to expect in Napa Valley wines from top-tier mountain sites. We're pleased to follow the tiny 2017 vintage with a more generous offering of what is bound to be a benchmark vintage of this wine. Enjoy it any time over the next three decades.
