Rivers-Marie Lore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lore Vineyard offers a more rounded, opulent texture, with a fruit-forward attack that turns more serious and structured on the mid-palate. Beautifully concentrated, loaded with minerality, and just a full-bodied, powerhouse of a wine, it’s another 2018 that’s going to have plenty of upfront appeal yet also have a long, long life.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lore Vineyard is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon coming from a single vineyard in Oakville. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a fair bit of swirling to reveal tantalizing scents of boysenberries, chocolate-covered cherries and crushed black and red currants with hints of menthol, tobacco leaf, violets, cinnamon stick and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with perfumed black fruits, backed up by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. Just stunning. Give it a good 4-5 years in bottle and drink it over the next 20 years+. 250 cases were made.
