Alcohol is very subtle for a full-bodied Napa Cab that is this young. Palate; Smooth velvety tannins, cherry and passion fruit. Nice acidity. Much more approachable than previous vintages. Drink; Do your best and try to give it a at least 6 months after bottling. 2019-2029 - Expected release is Oct/Nov 2018.
