2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga
Bursting with complex aromas of black cherry, coffee and licorice, this Cabernet Sauvignon is classic Calistoga. Full-bodied, yet smooth on entry, the jammy core is intermingled with notes of black licorice, anise, brown sugar and spice. The finish lingers with dark red berries that Calistoga Cabernet is best known. This is a wine that pairs with beef or lamb, game meats, and nutty aged cheeses. 350 cases produced.
