2018 AXR Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$79.95

This vintage was a gift for Napa Valley winemakers, and Jean Hoefliger wrapped it up with a pretty bow in this high-scoring Cabernet. Rich in red fruit, savory spice, and a dash of black pepper, it’s a beautiful expression of the region. Dark-plum and cherry flavors arrive on a smooth, round body with sweet, well-integrated tannins and loads of complexity. It may be a splurge for some, but it’s a steal at this price.

Wine Enthusiast

Refined in rich red fruit, savory spice and bolts of black pepper, this lovely appellation wine shows a roundedness and length—the tannins sweet and well integrated. Dark-plum, cherry and mocha flavors layer atop the smooth texture, providing tremendous quality and complexity for the price.
