2018 APERTURE SJ RANCH VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON


2018 Aperture Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

This small-production offering showcases generous aromas of raspberry jam, dark plum, rose petals, sagebrush, and cigar box, the 2018 SJ Ranch demonstrates bold, rich fruit highlighted with delicate floral qualities. The fruit hails exclusively from SJ Ranch Vineyard, a 7.9-acre parcel at the top of Chalk Hill, directly adjacent to the legendary Verité vineyards on Thomas Road.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats

“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon SJ Ranch Vineyard from Alexander Valley has a medium ruby-purple color and layered aromas of red and black currants and wafts of aniseed, mint chocolate, cedar and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with ideal ripeness and good lift, finishing with classy new oak spices.” 95 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
