Grand Napa Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2018 (750ml)
Blackberry and cassis aromas are jumping off the glass. On the palate, it has a concentrated body, harmonious tannins and a black peppery and fresh finish. Intriguing and full body. This would pair beautifully with red meat and all grilling fares.
Following a long growing season characterized by moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer, California’s 2018 harvest played out like a dream for winegrowers in regions across the state. Harvest began anywhere from 10 days to three weeks later than in 2017, and vintners are reporting exceptional quality, thanks to consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures, which allowed the grapes to mature slowly.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon (92%), Petit Verdot (3%), Cabernet Franc (3%), Malbec (2%)
