Mending Wall Cabernet, Napa Valley 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : California, Napa Valley
VARIETAL : Cabernet Sauvignon
Owned by three families in the wine industry, including winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, Outpost Winery (Frank Dotzler) and Pulido-Walker (Mark Pulido & Donna Walker). The name Mending Wall comes from the Robert Frost poem about two neighbors who meet once a year to restore the boundary that separates them, the boundary that brings them together.
After finding its stride in 2016 and 2017, the 2018 Mending Wall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is no different. A vintage that delivered a plentiful crop with ideal growing conditions from start to finish allows this wine’s natural tannin, acidity, and complexity to shine through. An upfront bouquet of bright red fruit is identifiable early, giving way to dark blue and blackberry on the pallet. This is an approachable Napa Cabernet that is ready to be popped and poured with friends.
