The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain comes from the Aquilini vineyard and boasts a fresh, dark fruit and nose with dusty florals and vanilla-tinged baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is balanced, focused and layered with expressive, juicy fruit tones of black raspberry, dark plum and juicy currant before displaying fine-grained tannins with elements of crème brûlée and toasted coconut. Concluding with a delicious and delightful finish, this should continue to please for another five to six years. Just over 20,000 bottles were filled after resting 18 months in 85% new American oak. Give it a try; it’s punching above his weight class.
Score: 90 points -- Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate, 2021
