This features a nice dark core of cassis and creamed plum notes laced with violet, graphite and juniper hints. The finish flows wonderfully, with the graphite edge extending as long as the fruit for lovely balance.
Vinous 95 Points: “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Chris’s Cuvée captures all of the intensity of this Calistoga site. Black fruit, leather, licorice, smoke, grilled herbs and chocolate all build in the glass. Ample and resonant, with tremendous richness the 2018 is positively stellar. Give the firm yet well-integrated tannins a bit of time to soften.”
Winery Notes: “Heavier crop loads and a very cool growing season allowed for some ideal extended hang time. Perfect fall weather gave way to even ripeness patiently brought in throughout the valley. Baker’s chocolate, fine tobacco leaf, and a brooding dark fruit profile form an intense nose. Balanced tannin to oak ratios support the jammy and refined fresh berry profile.”
