2018 CABERNET SAUVIGNON

1000 Hours 2018 Cabernet - Red Mountain - Aquilini Family Wines

DESCRIPTION

Introducing the 10,000 Hours 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. Not unlike a flour-less chocolate cake, this is a wine for grown ups. The first aromas of black cherry, espresso, and vanilla give way to big, chewy tannins, followed by a lingering finish. While practice does not always make perfect, we are inclined to believe this time we've come awfully close.

WINE PROFILE

Varietal Notes

Tasting Notes

Black cherry, plum, warm vanilla, and espresso bean on the nose. Huge entry on the palate leads to a super rich, dense mid palate with round, chewy tannins. Long finish, driven by black fruit notes and hints of toast.
