Truchard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
This wine remains one of the finest values in the Napa Valley and a cool-climate example of the variety, to boot. With great opening aromas of blackberry, clove and dried herb, the lifted, balanced flavors follow suit, showing plenty of freshness and length around a well-integrated and elegant core.
A terrific value-priced Cabernet, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a medium-bodied, spicy, nicely textured style with plenty of Cabernet tobacco, leather, and spice-laced red and black fruits. It's a charming, easygoing, delicious wine to drink over the coming 5-6 years.
An obvious fan-friendly style, this is soft and very forward in feel, with raspberry and plum compote flavors lined with light anise and fruitcake accents. Ends with a flash of mulled spice on the flattering finish. Drink now. 4,300 cases made.
