2018 Sauvignon Blanc - DiStefano Winery
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a very briary almost dusty nose marked with blackberries, black cherries, raspberries, cassis, and anise seed. Ripe berries mingle with tobacco leaf, cedar, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of violets. Integrated oak and firm, ripe tannins grip the palate and give way to a long chewy finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon is predominately from the Kiona Vineyards on Red Mountain. The vintage was cool and long allowing maximum flavors to develop while keeping sugar levels low.
