2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley, CA

  • Producer

    Macauley Vineyard

  • What we love

    A stunningly good Cabernet. Just dazzling in sheer delicious fruit, yet wonderfully structured. Black licorice, dried cherry, baking spices, herbs, and even a taste of grilled game. With time in the glass, the dominant, savory notes make way for dark chocolate, cola berry, and espresso, courtesy of 22 months in 75% new French Oak.

$80.00
