Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2018

Grapes come from the finest vineyard sites in Napa Valley’s best appellations, including Sequoia Grove and Tonella Estate vineyards in Rutherford, and select parcels from top Napa Valley growers. All fruit is hand sorted before a 1-2 day cold soak, then fermented in small batches, with pumpovers 2-3 times a day, and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine matured for 20 months in French (60%) and American oak barrels (40% new).

On the nose this wine has notes of sweet vanilla, pepper and spice followed by blackberry, strawberry, and berry pie. On the palate the wine is round and full bodied with notes of red fruit and bright acidity.

This wine is a serious expression of Napa Valley, showing classic dark, rich, blackberry and red cherry notes followed by savory, peppercorn characters that also highlight the signature of the varietal. Aromas of blackberries, leather, cedar, peppercorn, and a touch of vanilla are met on the palate with rich and racy dark plum and strawberries and hints of toasted nuts and cocoa powder.

Drink now or age for up to 10 years.

Critic Ratings

Tasting Panel Review - Published SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2021 - Rated 94:
Rich nose of plum and spice; a velvety texture; and intense flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, licorice, and chocolate. Stylish, with a lasting finish.

James Suckling Review - Published January 27, 2021 - Rated 92:
Alluring aromas of dried blueberries, currants, cloves and smoked meat. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Flavorful cooked-fruit and savory character. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 10/1/2021 - Rated 90:
Reductive, this wine opens in soy, tobacco and cedar. With a grippy backbone of tannin, it offers dense, rounded layers of black fruit that complement the earthiness. VIRGINIE BOONE
