2018 APERTURE OLIVER RANCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON


2018 Aperture Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

This single-vineyard blend demonstrates a stunning melody of black currant and dark cherry combined with winter spice notes and lifted fresh violet aromas. Oliver Ranch, planted by the viticulture legend, Phil Freese who leads the Aperture viticulture practices today, is a pristine example of precise vineyard planning and how that shapes the resulting wine.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats

“Deep ruby-purple, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oliver Ranch Vineyard slowly unfolds its wings to pure violet, cassis, tobacco leaves and pencil shavings, bright notes of mint chocolate, cedar and exotic spices. The palate is stunning, fanning out seamlessly from graphite to chocolate and intense, perfectly ripe blackcurrant fruit. The tannins are extraordinarily pixelated, the freshness is bright but integrated, and it has a Goldilocks ripeness! An extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley.” 98 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
