Grand Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa Valley 2018
We all crave luscious and expressive Cabernet under $100, and this deal is simply too good to be true.
Dark garnet in the glass, this is big, opulent juice from the heart of the Napa Valley AVA. A secret label rooted in great relationships, the people behind this wine are some of Napa’s most recognized talents. But unfortunately neither we nor they can share their true identities due to NDA’s that would make your head spin.
But don’t let the law get in your way of grabbing some of Napa’s best for an unbelievable deal!
Layers of blackberry, cassis, kirsch, wet minerals, graphite, and pepper erupt from the glass, while a rich palate full of dark fruits, spiced cedar, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, and hints of savory notes drip from the glass adding exotic depth and nuance. The finish is dense and full-bodied, with lingering notes of densely satisfying fruits that keep you coming back for more.
An absolute steal in the Napa Cab landscape, this is the perfect answer for those seeking Grand Napa Cab without paying the hefty tariff. It’s wines like these that make us hold out hope that you can still find superb juice without breaking the bank, and we thank the Cab gods everyday for deals like this!
You deserve to drink this well.
And with prices like these, it’s time to turn every night of the week into a grand liquid adventure!
Another terrific wine, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve offers lots of blackcurrants, spice box, tobacco leaf, and chocolatey nuances to go with a full-bodied style on the palate. It has the 2018 vintage’s fresher, more elegant style yet brings ample fruit and has an expansive, layered mouthfeel as well as a great finish. It’s another wine to enjoy any time over the coming 15-20 years.
Aromas of blackberry, bark, coffee and black tea on the nose. Citrus zest, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Rich flavors, yet it retains freshness. Try from 2022.
Dwight Bonewell is the winemaker behind Grand Napa; in this 2018 Reserve, he achieved impressive clarity in its tannins and layers of berry flavor. There’s strawberry and deeper blackberry in the scent, then a wilder note of huckleberry in the flavor. It’s satisfy-ing and clean, a happy wine to enliven a din-ner party.
