2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Appassimento
Arguably the most important red wine grape in the world, a distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon is one of life’s great pleasures. Our Appassimento Cab is made in a style similar to northern Italy’s celebrated Amarone and displays a lavish richness that is almost port-like. The grapes are allowed to dry slowly on the vine, which intensely concentrates the flavors. The result is a full-bodied and brooding beauty with generous aromas of blackberry, black cherry, ripe plum and dried fig with hints of cola, black tea and tarragon. On the palate, loads of dark black fruit give way to a decadently rich finish with surprising elegance. Drinking beautifully now, this is one to lay down for a decade or more.
