The 2018 NVD Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose reveals notes of warm plums, baked black currants and black cherries with suggestions of clove oil, black tea, Chinese five spice and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with firm, crunchy black berry flavors with bags of freshness and plush tannins, finishing with compelling energy.

Moving to the reds, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon NVD comes from a mix of valley floor and mountain fruit, offering medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of blue fruits, chocolate, roasted herbs, and bouquet garni. It has plenty of fruit, soft tannins, and a balanced, delicious style geared for drinking over the coming 10-15 years or so.
