Consistently floral year over year with dried juniper lavender, blackberry preserve, olive tapenade, and cassias. The mountain hillside tannins frame this wine with incredible weight while still holding onto its bright elegance. Multiple layers of ripe raspberries, blueberry, and cherry-cola complimented by dried herbs, and graphite that build on the palate to arrive at a long, mineral-driven finish.Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Del Rio Vineyard has an opaque ruby-purple color and notable purity on the nose. Morello cherries and spiced plums are accented by notes of milk chocolate, mint leaves, star anise and graphite. The full-bodied palate is powerful and fresh with intense, spicy fruits laced with mineral character and still fairly youthfully wound. Allow it time to improve in bottle over the next 3-5 years and then enjoy it over the next 15-20+ years. 450 cases were made.” 96 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
