Tasting Notes:

94 points Wine Enthusiast

This is a beautifully made wine, 100% varietal and sourced from two Coombsville sites, made by Andy Erickson. Cigar box and crushed rock accent an impressively structured core of youthful tannin, dried herb, black currant and baking spice. The oak is well integrated and friendly to the fruit and savory characteristics. Best After 2038. Cellar Selection.

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from this estate showed beautifully, with a classic dense purple color as well as great aromatics of currants, blueberries, tobacco leaf, new leather, and spice. Medium to full-bodied and nicely concentrated, with ripe, velvety tannins, this young, unevolved Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink nicely for 10-15 years. It’s well worth seeking out.

92+ points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers vibrant scents of baked black cherries, black currant pastilles and blackberry pie with hints of truffles, tapenade and tar. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and refreshing, offering bright crunchy black fruits and an earthy finish. Rating: 92+
