The 2018 is a mesmerizing blend of the Cabernet Sauvignon, which is bursting with fruit from the moment that cork is out, alongside Cabernet Franc and a kiss of Petit Verdot to lend finesse and refinement. Still, the power is undeniable. Crème de cassis, spring flowers, chocolate and graphite all come into play here. This is incredibly pure, complex and practically perfect; don’t let it pass you by!

The same 60/40 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, brought up in new oak, the 2018 Tench Vineyard EE Red Wine is another incredibly pure, complex, yet powerful 2018. Rocking levels of crème de cassis, spring flowers, chocolate, and graphite give way to a full-bodied, pure, and seamless wine that has incredible potential.

Wine Advocate

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color. It explodes from the glass with bombastic scents of crème de cassis, baked plums and boysenberries plus hints of mocha, licorice, Marmite toast and sandalwood with a touch of star anise. The palate delivers mouth-coating, full-on full-bodied black fruit preserves flavors, framed by plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with a veritable firework display of exotic spices.
