2018 Jones Family Vineyards 'Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

The 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows remarkable approachability early in its maturation process, possessing a harmonious balance of complex flavors, great depth, power and nuance. The wine is almost completely opaque in the glass with a red-black core and dark ruby halo around the edge. The mouth feel and trajectory of the wine is sleek and decadent.

A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals a dense purple color as well as a Bordeaux-like nose of blue fruits, green tobacco, cedarwood, and spring flowers. This fresh, medium to full-bodied beauty offers a wonderful sense of purity, a notable sense of freshness, and gorgeous overall balance. It reminds me of a great vintage of Ducru-Beaucaillou. It has the balance and elegance to drink nicely today, yet it's going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and age gracefully for two decades. This is impressive and is for those who like a slightly restrained, Old World style in their Napa Cabernet.
