2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville Station
From the first swirl of your glass, you’ll know this is a special Cabernet from the heralded Oakville Station vineyard. Flamboyant aromas of boysenberry, plum and blackberry are intertwined with baking spice and cedar. Full bodied and rich on entry, the generous fruit-focused core offers ripe black fruit flavors that open up to layers of spice, tobacco and a hint of cacao. Both elegant and powerful, the tannins on the finish are youthful yet integrated, lingering with a bit of minerality and balanced acidity. Approachable now, but it will be worth the wait if you can set it aside for a few years.
