2018 The Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 3L
100% Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Ellman Estate)
Our 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a small barrel selection of the finest fruit from our vineyard. Deep and brooding, the 2018 Estate will have a long life, evolving over time. As the foundation of the Ellman line-up with an intense garnet hue, it overdelivers with notes of cassis, cigar box and Chinese Five Spice—replete with hints of fennel, whole black peppercorns, star anise, cloves and cinnamon. Walking the tightrope of finesse with extreme power, the palate gives way to generous flavors of blackberry, cassis, cola and nuanced notes of musk, porcini and hibiscus, which interplay with the stately framework. This is a wine that commands respect, and will continue to reveal itself overtime.
