2018 Grgich Hills Estate 'Old Vines' Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville

$139.95 $149.95

This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville Old Vine is a testament to the complexity of flavors that are the result of caring for old vines. The wine is elegant and statuesque with aromas of blackberries, ripe blueberries, black currant, cinnamon and caramel. It is an age-worthy, dense and inky wine with surprisingly silky tannins that opens up to reveal more complex notes of red pepper, sandalwood and bay leaf. Enjoy this wine with roasted rack of lamb, Wagyu beef and truffled roasted fingerling potatoes.

Baked blueberries, blackcurrants, ripe blackberries, nutmeg, licorice and peppercorns on the nose. Some ink and oyster shell too. Full-bodied, concentrated and compact with a dense core of black fruit supported by firm tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink from 2023.

One of the clear standouts here is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Selection, which has a concentrated, slightly rustic, yet still enjoyable and character-filled style, and it’s clearly well-made. Dark fruits, sous bois, tobacco, and damp earth all define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with firm tannins and good acidity. It should have 15 years of longevity.
