2018 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon

$17.00
Truly amazing. Deep blue and black in color. Mouth-filling layers of black currant, blackberry, cedar box and crushed stone. Death-defying balance and a firm, rich finish that seems to never end. Yes, amazing. - Charles

Current and Past Scores

91 Points, Ranked #49 on Top 100 Wines of 2019, Wine Spectator (v2017)
“Precise and vibrantly structured, with black cherry, espresso and spice flavors that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.”

93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2017)
“The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a value that’s hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3–4 times the price.”

Vintage
The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by along and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!
