Origin California, Napa Valley
Brand Etude
Alcohol/vol 14.5%

Fresh and expressive, showing remarkable depth and complexity, tributes of the cooler western bench of Oakville. Intense notes of dark black cherry, brambly blackberry, red currant, black plum, dark chocolate and cassis are supported by more savory, earthy notes of dried lavender, black olive tapenade, graphite and black licorice. Exceptionally concentrated, generous and balanced with firm, present tannins that are well-integrated with the oak spice, leading to a long lingering savory finish.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is up-front and approachable, with lush blackberry and cassis fruit as well as tobacco and some graphite notes. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum on the palate, it has velvety yet certainly present tannins, plenty of baby fat, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. Displaying more floral and violet notes with time in the glass, I suspect this beautiful, elegant 2018 will have two decades of longevity.

A solid, direct Cab, with a core of cassis and dark cherry compote flavors laced liberally with singed cedar and vanilla. Ends with bittersweet cocoa and tobacco notes through the finish. Drink now through 2032. 2,298 cases made.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is bright and full of energy. Dark cherry, chocolate, licorice, cloves and plum all race out of the glass. A wine of vibrancy and depth, the Napa Valley Cabernet is a terrific introduction to the Etude wines. The 2018 is beautifully done from start to finish.
