Winemaker Tasting Notes: The 2018 Grace Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exudes gorgeous dark red fruit, black cherry, black currant, accented by notes of bittersweet cocoa, black licorice, cigar box, resin, pink peppercorn, rose and a hint of mint which offers freshness and lift. The palate is broad and plush with layers of vibrant dark red fruit and spice seamlessly underpinned by soft, fine tannins and an extremely long palate. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will age at a glacial pace for years to come.
"Such beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, sage and flowers. Black raspberries and blackberries, too, as well as mineral undertones. Full-bodied with a superb, very fine and dusty tannin texture. The tannins are really fine and manicured. Very cool, with a long, long finish. 150 cases made and only from the upper part of the vineyard. Drink in 2025 and onwards."- James Suckling
"Even better, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is brought up in 100% new oak. It's a denser, more concentrated, masculine wine and has impressive darker currant fruit as well as notes of graphite, scorched earth, chocolate, and lead pencil. With tons of mid-palate depth, more minerality, building tannins, and a great finish, it's going to need 5-7 years and will keep for 30+ years"- Jeb Dunnuck
