2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley
2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle

Crafted by

Heidi Barrett

A spectacular growing season has allowed us to create a textbook example of the vast potential of Fantesca’s Spring Mountain terroir. Cool evenings provided by our Spring Mountain elevation and the summer’s moderate temperatures enabled our estate fruit to slowly ripen while maintaining its inherent acidity. 

This is an opulent wine with deep claret coloring and captivating aromas of berry, plum, and dark cherries, complemented by toasty French oak. Lush, soft, and beautifully balanced on the palate, it offers a touch of cedar and spices. While enjoyable now, this is an age-worthy wine that promises to evolve and delight over the next decade or more.

About This Release

Delve deeper into this extraordinary release with visual storytelling curated by the Fantesca team.

From the Winemaker

Our Estate Cabernet has deep claret coloring with aromas of berry, plum and dark cherries. The toasty French oak component shows off the beautiful fruit. Lush and soft across the palate with nice, ripe character and a touch of cedar and spices. Lovely balance with good length and structure will suggest age-worthiness as well as drinkability upon release if you can’t just wait. Patience is a virtue though and this wine will keep getting better for the next decade or more.
