Winemaker Tasting Notes: 2018 One Point Five is aromatically bright and overflowing with elegant, energetic flavors of red summer berries, black cherry, rose petal, and red and black plum, along with mocha, cinnamon, and spices. The seamless, silky tannins create a lush mouthfeel now and hold the promise for more riches to come with careful cellaring.
"This is a muscular wine with a velvety backdrop—classic for the vintage and appellation. Silky tannins glide across a foundation of turned earth, crushed rock, clove and tobacco. The wine is hugely structured and grand. Dark plum, cherry and mocha flavors round out the profile."- Wine Enthusiast.
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) might be the finest vintage to date. Dense purple-hued, with a thrilling nose of blue and black fruits as well as graphite and crushed stone, it's medium to full-bodied and has a wonderfully pure, elegant texture, ample underlying tannins, and a great finish. It shows the more focused, elegant, yet structured style of the vintage to a T."- Jeb Dunnuck.
Varietal: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec.
