Substance Cs Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Outer quote mark This has the wonderful, dark-fruit and olive character of a ripe cabernet sauvignon, but the polished tannins fold over the wine. It's full-bodied, yet agile and focused at the finish. Real wine for the money. Drink now. Inner quote mark (6/2020)
I loved the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cs, which ranks with the finest releases to date for this cuvée. Classy cassis fruits, lead pencil, and tobacco notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, integrated oak, and a great finish. It makes a mockery of just about every other Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range. Buy a case and enjoy over the coming 4-6 years, probably longer.
Dark red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, licorice, violet, chocolate mint and menthol. Juicy, penetrating Cabernet with lovely restrained sweetness to its flavors of dark berries, spices, flowers and minerals. Nicely pliant and deep, finishing with supple toothdusting tannins and lovely juicy length. (made from multiple sources)
