Description

Sequoia Grove Napa valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This classically rich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark in color with aromas of bright black cherry and blackberry, followed by baking spices and a hint of chocolate. On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense flavors of blackberry with round and smooth tannins, with subtle notes of toasted vanilla.

Grapes for this 2018 come from the finest vineyard sites in Napa Valley's best appellations, including Sequoia Grove and Tonella Estate vineyards in Rutherford (36%), and select parcels from top growers including Morisoli and Beckstoffer in Rutherford, Stagecoach in Atlas Peak, Lamoreaux in the Oak Knoll District and Healy in St. Helena.

All fruit is hand sorted before a 1-2 day cold soak, then fermented in small batches, with pumpovers 2-3 times a day, and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The final blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 1% Syrah, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine matured for 20 months in 50% new French oak barrels.

Reductive, this wine opens in soy, tobacco and cedar. With a grippy backbone of tannin, it offers dense, rounded layers of black fruit that complement the earthiness. Virginie Boone

The base appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is rock-solid, with lots of cassis and mulberry fruits mixed with candied flowers, spice, and vanilla-like nuances. It's rich and medium to full-bodied, with solid overall balance and ripe tannins, all making for a delicious Cabernet that's going to keep for over a decade.
