Jeb Dunnuck called this a great value at full price – imagine what he’d think about this deal! 91% Cabernet Sauvignon meets 9% Petit Verdot for an impressive, Bordeaux-like red. It opens with blackcurrants, dark chocolate, scorched earth and graphite aromas. The palate is full-bodied and rich, with the signature purity of the vintage and terrific depth. As Dunnuck says, “It’s certainly a serious, outstanding wine.” Coombsville’s reputation as the next great Napa Valley sub-appellation rests on thoughtfully crafted, premium gems like this one.
A great value, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Felicity comes from the cooler Coombsville region and is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot. Impressive, Bordeaux-like notes of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, scorched earth, and graphite all emerge from the glass. Offering full-bodied richness on the palate, it has the vintage's purity and elegance as well as terrific mid-palate depth, building, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's impressive, yet its more focused, backward style on the palate suggests 4-5 years of bottle age are warranted. It's certainly a serious, outstanding wine.
