Elizabeth Spencer Special Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Cuvée is a terrific value from this producer. It has a classic, very balanced, medium-bodied style that offers lots of red and black currant-like fruit as well as traditional Bordeaux-like notes of cedar pencil, tobacco leaf, and loamy soil. It's nicely balanced, with present yet ripe tannins, integrated acidity, and a great finish, all making for an outstanding Napa Valley Cabernet that competes with wines two to three times the price. It should keep for 10-15 years.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Cuvée is a soft, easygoing wine to drink now and over the next handful of years, while the flavors remain bright. Sweet red cherry, red plum, spice and mocha add aromatic nuance to this tasty, straightforward offering. Drink it over the next handful of years.
