"Truly amazing. Deep blue and black in color. Mouth-filling layers of black currant, blackberry, cedar box and crushed stone. Death-defying balance and a firm, rich finish that seems to never end. Yes, amazing."

“This has the wonderful, dark-fruit and olive character of a ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, but the polished tannins fold over the wine. It’s full-bodied, yet agile and focused at the finish. Real wine for the money. Drink now.”

I loved the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cs, which ranks with the finest releases to date for this cuvée. Classy cassis fruits, lead pencil, and tobacco notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, integrated oak, and a great finish. It makes a mockery of just about every other Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range. Buy a case and enjoy over the coming 4-6 years, probably longer.
