#65 Top 100 Best Buy 2018
Return to List

Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) takes the lead here, with the balance in Syrah. The aromas fascinate, evoking gun smoke, spice, Bing cherry, black currant, dried herb and fresh flowers, with the oak influence dialed way back. The flavors show dazzling purity and richness, along with a grip of tannins and a meaty, smoke-laced finish. It's a whole lot of wine in a nearly oak-free style rarely seen from the state at this price point. Sean P. Sullivan
