Wine & Spirits

A dark and heady wine, all crushed berries and dark spices, this cabernet marries sumptuous oak spice with deep, powerful fruit. A big and burly classic from Red Mountain, this wine’s tannins feel powerful and balanced at once.

James Suckling

Blackcurrants, brambleberries, toasted walnuts, spice box, sandalwood and dried flowers on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Structured and precise with tight layers of dark fruit and spice. Focused. Drink or hold.

WA91

Wine Advocate

The 2018 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon starts with a firm, dusty and juicy nose with aromas of tasty black cherry, wilted lavender and roses with elements of redcurrants and crème de cassis. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is juicy and features dusty tannins, with flavors of black plum and juicy black Raspberry skin across the mid-palate. The Cabernet concludes with firm, tannic edge and a lingering flavor of crème de violette. This rested for 20 months in French oak, 40% new, and represents a great value for the price.

WS91

Wine Spectator

Structured yet supple, with vibrant black cherry, toasty mocha and spice flavors that finish with polished tannins.

Wine Enthusiast

This wine shows some reduction out of the gate. Behind that are notes of cassis, anise and herbs. The palate is flavorful with red and black fruit notes but has a reserved sensibility to it. There's plenty of structure around it all. A warm finish caps it off.
