2018 Vineyard 29 'CRU' Cabernet Sauvignon

2018 Vineyard 29 'CRU' Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California

The CRU Cabernet is deeply rooted in the vineyards of St. Helena, with about 60% of the fruit coming from area growers. This 2018 ‘Cru’ is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Verdot and 2% Malbec. The wine was matured in 100% French oak (50% new) prior to bottling.  This is a serious Napa Cab that nonetheless is ready for immediate enjoyment. Grilled meat, cocoa and Bing cherry perfume a beautifully expressive nose. Firm tannins and structure house notes of cassis, plums, black peppercorns and fresh tobacco leaf. This wine finishes with a long, weighty finish that never loses its focus and remains pure throughout.

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck. "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.”

92 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous. "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru is fabulous. A gorgeous, entry-level offering, the Cru Cabernet opens with bright, captivating aromatics. Medium in body, fresh and juicy, the 2018 is an absolute delight to taste today. Black cherry, mocha, licorice and chocolate are all laced together in this hugely appealing Cabernet from Vineyard 29. Drink it over the next handful of years."
