Lewelling Vineyards Wight Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, USA 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : California, Napa Valley, St. Helena
VARIETAL : Cabernet Sauvignon
With impressive depth of complexity the 2018 Wight Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is both elegant and forthright. This wine is laden with cassis and spice, and is bolstered by elevated tannins. Notes of forest floor, cedar wood, violets, and dark fruit cascade over the palate and finish in an energetic opulence.
600 cases Produced
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Wight Vineyard is a smaller selection from the estate vineyard, and it spent 20 months in 90% new French oak, of which it shows not a trace. Beautiful cassis fruits, notes of smoke, tobacco, and chocolate, full-bodied richness, velvety tannins, and a blockbuster style all define this gorgeous 2018, which offers both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure. It has another two decades of prime drinking ahead of it.
