Cielo Malibu Estate Vineyards 2017 Malibu Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Saddle Rock-Malibu)

Editors' Choice

This reserve bottling is a phenomenal accomplishment for this young wine region, easily standing up to similarly rich bottlings from points north. Intense aromas of black currant and black cherry meet with licorice paste, cracked pepper and intense violets on the nose. The palate blends ripe black fruits with crushed gravel minerality, lifted by more violets and a brisk acidity that stands up as the sticky tannins fade into the finish. Matt Kettmann
