Jeb Dunnuck Review
All Cabernet brought up in 40% new French oak, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley is slightly more expensive than the larger production Columbia Valley release, but I think it's a better wine in 2018. Beautiful cassis, tobacco, chocolate, and earth notes emerge on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a round, mouth-filling texture, plenty of chewy tannins, and a great finish. It shows the pure, elegant style of the vintage nicely and is going to deliver the goods over the coming 10-15 years.
Wine Tasting Notes
With an elegant, old world structure, this sophisticated Cabernet shows savory aromas of bouquet garni, rose petal, and cocoa. A robust core of blackberry and plum with notes of black currant and cigar box are framed with polished tannins on a rich, harmonious finish.
