The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Grand Daddy is just about pure magic in a glass, and it will probably merit a triple-digit rating in another 4-5 years. A stunning array of blueberries, melted licorice, cassis, scorched earth, violets, and tobacco soar from the glass of this deep, saturated purple (almost blue) 2018. Gorgeously concentrated, full-bodied, packed with sweet fruit, yet still weightless and elegant on the palate, it’s another magical wine from Carter Cellars. Drink bottles any time over the coming 25+ years or more.
