Fortress Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, North Coast|
Intense color with a dark ruby center and garnet edges. Aromas of black currant to blackberry with a bit of mocha and a lift of sweet vanilla. The palate is fruit-forward with dark lush blackberry, blueberry, and black cherry flavors, followed by a great mid-palate with chewy tannins and hints of cocoa on the finish. Overall, the wine has great balance and is approachable enough to drink young as well as the structure and tannins to age gracefully.
Showing excellent depth and impressive concentration, this full-bodied and well-balanced wine impresses with focused black-fruit flavors, a creamy texture and beautifully integrated tannins that afford a velvety mouthfeel. So delicious now, but it will be best after 2024.
