2018 "CRU" Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, CA
What we love
The 2018 “CRU” Cabernet Sauvignon holds nothing back upon opening. Grilled meat, cocoa and Bing cherry perfume a beautifully expressive nose. Pulling from multiple vineyards throughout Napa Valley, this wine truly encompasses the incredible diversity that Napa Valley has to offer. 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.
About this Wine
