"The 2018 vintage continues its ascendance in the best barrel of wine selected from what has been one of our most nuanced and complex vintages of the decade. This ONE Cabernet Sauvignon is 70% from our Twisted Oak Vineyard, a hillside site that grows fruit of intense character from steep elevations and soil drainage, and 30% from our Coombsville Vineyard, a cooler climate, dry-farmed, head-trained site that develops fruit with a deep, rugged personality from its stressed growing conditions. This is the first vintage we selected a highly allocated new French oak barrel whose proprietary assemblage was curated for long cellaring that magnifies the wine’s power and precision. Chocolate covered black cherry, briar fruit, savory panatela and warm earth fragrances. A rich and refined texture envelops the palate with ripe blackberry and red plum, fresh leather, sweet pine, iron and graphite, all concentrated with a bracing energy from balanced acid and structured tannins. The 2018 ONE Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed now with decanting and cellared for decades to come."
