Lewelling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon St Helena, USA 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : California, Napa Valley, St. Helena
VARIETAL : Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2018 Lewelling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is emboldened by dark berries, which meld easily with sweet vanilla, rose petal, and licorice. On the darker end of the fruit spectrum and with substantial but gentle oak tannin, the 2018 has a lasting sway. This enticing wine impresses the mid- palate and might prove to be a vintage for the ages.
950 cases Produced
A killer wine as well as a smoking value, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon comes all from the estate vineyard outside of St. Helena and spent 20 months in 70% new French oak. Loads of crème de cassis, blueberries, toasted spices, and flowery incense make up the bouquet, and it hits the palate with a ripe, round, sweetly fruited, perfectly balanced style that’s already impossible to resist.
