2018 GRAMERCY CELLARS CABERNET SAUVIGNON RESERVE
"Blended with the addition of 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is an instant success. The nose is wrapped in gorgeous, complex aromas of cigar box, pencil shavings and graphite followed by dark red fruits, blackberry and oak spices tied to spicy florals. Full-bodied, the wine is layered, precise and finessed on the palate, with gobs of picturesque black fruit flavors and elegant oak tones that give way to a firm mineral tension and fine-grained tannins. This will remain food-friendly well past its 20th birthday and is a masterclass of what Washington Cabernet Sauvignon can achieve. Bravo!"

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is more expensive and is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 5% Merlot, aged 23 months in 45% new French oak. Its similar ruby/plum color is followed by a Margaux-like bouquet of red and black currants, tobacco leaf, graphite, and spicy oak. Beautiful on the palate as well, it's medium to full-bodied, has a pure, elegant mouthfeel, some chalky minerality, top-notch balance, and a great finish. It's going to benefit from 3-4 years in the cellar and cruise for 20-25 years if stored correctly.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a stunning new bottling built for long-term aging. Kirsch cordial and mocha tones combine with suggestions of creosote and blackberry compote on the palate. With more air, the herbal undertones become more prominent. This fantastic bottling will cellar well for the next 20 years. Be sure to give it at least two hours in the decanter if consuming it in its heady youth.

This producer always eschews big, bold Cabernet in favor of wines crafted to be consumed with food, and that is what we have here. The aromas offer notes of flower, tea, herb, black cherry, clove and chocolate. The palate is juicy and restrained, with a grip of tannins on the finish. Give this until at least 2028 to fully reap the rewards. It will have more than a decade of great drinking beyond that.
