Plums, Asian spices, tobacco, and lead pencil notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru, which hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a beautifully polished, elegant texture, and outstanding length. This is another gorgeous 2018 displaying notable purity, balance, and length as well as richness. It can be drunk any time over the coming 15+ years.
Wine Advocate – 90 points
A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru offers up seductive notes of warm cassis, plum preserves and blueberry compote with hints of chocolate mint and candied violets with a touch of tapenade. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly styled and refreshing, with plenty of crunchy black fruits and a grainy texture, finishing with an herbal lift.
