This no nonsense Cabernet Sauvignon coats the palatte with layers of dark cherry, cocoa nib, forest floor and soft hints of cedar. Full bodied and well proportioned, this wine carries great length and focus on the palate. Already elegant and well-structured at its release, this wine will continue to evolve in complexity.

Thick, dusty, textured and made in a full-bodied style, this wine succeeds in its complementary marriage between savory cedar, cigar and pencil shavings and dark black fruit dipped in chocolate shavings. Lengthy, it has 5% Cabernet Franc, which appears to add violet aromas and additional herbal characteristics.

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is redolent of ripe black currants, plum preserves and black cherry compote with touches of menthol, pencil lead, bay leaves and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with crunchy black fruit flavors, supported by well-judged, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long with a minty kick.

Incorporating 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a pretty, balanced wine offering plenty of blue fruits, crushed rock, graphite, and leafy herb-like aromas and flavors. Nicely balanced and medium-bodied on the palate, it has plenty of chewy tannins and should evolve for 7-8 years or more.
