New Release: Lot 900 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Sourced from multiple pedigreed vineyards (Tenma, To Kalon, Wallis Vineyards to name a few) that are decorated with 95+ scores a mile long from the usual leading critics. The wine spent 26 months in new French Oak and evolved with perfect calibration. It is without question – this is a Cab-lover’s dream with supremely intense fruit, yet perfectly refined structure. Balanced and delineated with every sip while the velvety tannins are simply sublime. We acquired this jewel of wine in barrel from a pedigreed program that will not sell a Cab for less than $150/bottle.
Lot 900 has a dark, inky color in the glass. Immediate aromatics are generous with rich notes of black fruit, crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and red clay dust. On the palate, blackcurrant, Santa Rosa plum, Star anise with a touch of minerality give way to a powerfully balanced, lengthy, velvety finish. Just. Wow.
This is an incredible standalone wine, but will also pair beautifully with anything you choose to put on your holiday table this season.
