2018 TEXTBOOK Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750ml
#1 in The Wall Street Journal, noted winewriter Lettie Teague set out to find the country's best affordable Cabernets, and our 2018 Cabernet earned the #1 spot!
Vintage 2018 was picture perfect and began with bud break in late February and had steady and mild temperatures throughout the growing season. This allowed us to carefully plan and be proactive in the sites. Harvest went smoothly and slowly. It was a larger crop than normal, but the slow pace of harvest allowed patience and the delicious flavors were really encouraging.
- A diverse array of superb sites in Napa Valley deliver structure, balance and purity
- Restrained viticultural and winemaking practices lead to varietal purity and a balanced flavor footprint
- Classic Bordelaise winemaking (handwork in vineyard, hand-picking and hand sorting, new French oak barrels, egg-white fining, unfiltered) provides an impeccably balanced result.
