The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sugarloaf Vineyard displays a rich, darker purple color as well as solid notes of ripe black fruits, dark chocolate, cedarwood, graphite, and leafy herbs and tobacco. It’s nicely balanced, full-bodied, has a wonderful sense of purity, and a great finish. It’s a classic 2018 with it pure, focused, age-worthy style. I’d give bottles 3-5 years of bottle age, and it should evolve for 20+ years or more. It’s impressive and probably the finest version of this cuvée I’ve tasted from the estate, surpassing even the 2015 and 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2047
