Winemaker Notes:

The 2018 Tether Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with luscious aromas of black currants, blackberries, black cherries and blueberry compote. The gorgeous dark fruit core is complemented by layers of volcanic rock, spring flowers, graphite, mocha and well-integrated French oak. The wine possesses a rich texture that coats the palate in velvety tannins, sweet ripe fruit and elegant toasty oak. This wine showcases dazzling finesse and leaves you with an enduring finish.

The deeply hued 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Anna Monticelli is a beauty and in the running for the value of the vintage. Lots of cassis, flowers, and tobacco notes emerge from the glass, and it's balanced and medium to full-bodied, with integrated acidity and great finish. The real deal, it has the structure to evolve for at least 10-12 years. This is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec, aged 18 months in 50% new French oak.

A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color. It leaps from the glass with warm cassis, baked plums and wild blueberries scents, plus hints of clove oil and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of crunchy fruit, framed by plush tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a spicy kick. 2,039 cases were made.
