Textbook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Ripe and juicy, with a forward profile of dark plum and blackberry fruit backed by hints of anise, mocha and singed vanilla. A flash of savory in the background keeps this honest. Drink now through 2026. 14,640 cases made.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with copious dark fruit, leather, dried herb, tobacco and chocolate notes. Medium in body yet also quite closed for the vintage, the Cabernet needs time in bottle to blossom. The Textbook wines are usually much more forthcoming at this stage.
The value-priced 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a dense purple color as well as juicy, up-front notes of bright blackberries, mulberries, spice, vanilla, and leafy herbs. It's medium-bodied, straightforward, and a good bistro wine that leads with fruit.
