|Region||California, Central Coast|
|Brand||Smith and Hook|
“What a wonderful expression of Cabernet! Deep ruby-purple in color, this gorgeous & powerful 2018 Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon showcases intense fragrances of black currants, ripe black cherries and blackberries with subtle notes of violets, mocha and dried spices. Full bodied, rich complex, layered fruit; balanced by fresh acidity with a firm, polished structure. Big, powerful, modern-styled Cabernet Sauvignon with seductive texture, velvety tannins & a lovely sense of place. The juicy dark, ripe berry fruit is enhanced with subtle nuances of cedar, clove and vanilla bean which round out the long, smooth & harmoniously expressive finish. You don’t want to miss this extraordinary red wine! Drinking beautifully now through 2028.”
This red begins with aromas of a black-cherry sundae, complete with caramel, whipped cream and nuts, as well as a bit of coffee. There's just enough bite to the tannins on the sip to uphold those lush qualities.
