There are 47 barrels of the flagship 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label, a selection from Oakville that shows the vintage style beautifully. A wonderful perfume of crème de cassis, chocolate, lead pencil, and violets gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated, expansive Cabernet with wonderful, velvety tannins, a dense, layered mid-palate, and a great finish. This broad, sexy, seamless 2018 can be drunk today with incredible pleasure, but it’s going to age like a great 1982 Bordeaux and keep for 30+ years.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is just a little reticent at this youthful stage. With a little swirling and coaxing, it begins to reveal a staggeringly beautiful nose of warm cassis, boysenberries, black raspberries and dark chocolate, with hints of freshly cut red roses, cinnamon stick, cedar chest and pencil lead plus a waft of fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is super intense, featuring tightly wound layers of black fruits, minerals and baking spices, supported by a rock-solid frame of pixelated tannins and electric freshness, finishing long and fantastically fragrant. What a stunner! (LPB) 98+
A selection of the best barrels of both the Fortuna and Leopoldinda sites. A blend is not always greater than the sum of its parts, but it is the case here. The nose is floral, woodsy, rustic and laden with black fruits. A luscious, simply delicious palate ends up in a powdery, clean, quenching finish. A great example of the eastern hills of Oakville.
