2018 RAW Cabernet Sauvignon


Categories: ,


This is a powerful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and I have to remind myself that it didn’t see oak. There is an intense nose of ripe cassis, cardamom, damson plum, and a hint of tar and leather. The nose is lifted, suggesting higher alcohol. The palate is concentrated and drying, with a pleasing acidity and a long ripe finish. The fruit shines through on the palate. I suggest decanting this wine, and maybe even aging it for some time before braving its intensity. This will develop slowly. If you must, decant for a few hours, use large glassware, don’t serve it too cold as the tannins will take over, and have something high in protein and fat like a ribeye. (May 26th, 2020 JL)
