Lerner Project Project 18 Cab 2018
|Region||United States, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Another head-turning wine from this project, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Project 18 got a handful of expletives in my notes. A plush, sexy, full-bodied 2018 delivering pure dark fruits, hints of menthol and tobacco, a deep, layered texture, and a blockbuster of a finish, it leans into the hedonistic end of the spectrum yet also has balance and class. Drink this brilliant effort over the coming 15-20 years.
The 2018 Project 18 is Lerner's new Bordeaux style blend. Plump, juicy and inviting, the 2018 has so much to offer. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Franc work so well here in adding juiciness and aromatic lift to a core of dark fruit, chocolate, and sweet spice flavors. It is a terrific introduction to the range.
