Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Red Mountain|
Rich and delicious to consume now, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain shows off ripe blackberry, black cherry and scorched earth tones on the palate. Full-bodied, with good finesse and depth, this youthful Cabernet Sauvignon will provide drinking enjoyment over the next decade. -- Owen Bargreen

The 2018 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon starts with a firm, dusty and juicy nose with aromas of tasty black cherry, wilted lavender and roses with elements of redcurrants and crème de cassis. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is juicy and features dusty tannins, with flavors of black plum and juicy black Raspberry skin across the mid-palate. The Cabernet concludes with firm, tannic edge and a lingering flavor of crème de violette. This rested for 20 months in French oak, 40% new, and represents a great value for the price. 252,000 bottles were filled.
This wine shows some reduction out of the gate. Behind that are notes of cassis, anise and herbs. The palate is flavorful with red and black fruit notes but has a reserved sensibility to it. There's plenty of structure around it all. A warm finish caps it off.
