2018 Waypoint 'Lowrey Vineyard - Homestead' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley


Perfect exposure to sunlight and tightly spaced vines brings great tension and concentration to this wine. Medium to full-bodied, the expressive terroir shines through in black cherries, cedar and fine-grained tannins. This ripe, airy gem is an easy drinking delight from a stunning hillside vineyard.

A waypoint is an intermediate point or place on a route or line of travel. In modern terms, it most often refers to coordinates that specify one’s position on the globe. In the wine world, one’s waypoint tells a unique story of time and place in the glass. Waypoint was born out of the idea of spotlighting singlevineyard properties, throughout California, to highlight the unique terroir and characteristics of each of these singular plots of dirt. Between Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, Waypoint was one of the first brands in California to place an emphasis on sourcing fruit from one specific locale and giving it the credit it was due.

A chewy grip of leather, tobacco and black currant highlight this robust, full-bodied red. Structured and cohesive, it retains an enduring richness of vanilla and oak amidst more complex elements of graphite and crushed rock. Enjoy from 2028–2035.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lowrey Vineyard Homestead comes from the New Frontier umbrella (owned by Alejandro Bulgheroni) and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw 20 months in 78% new French oak. This rich, satisfying Cabernet reveals a dense purple color, impressive blackcurrant and cassis fruits, notes of chocolate, tobacco, and earth, medium to full-bodied richness, and a great sense of minerality on the finish. Enjoy bottles over the coming 10-15 years.
