2018 John Anthony Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
“This John Anthony Reserve is our finest cabernet sauvignon expression from the 2018 vintage, selected and blended from exemplary barrels. For the 2018 vintage we selected fruit predominantly from the head-trained, dry-farmed vines at Coombsville Vineyard, with a complement from the rocky, hillside terrain of Twisted Oak Vineyard. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and black fig yield to cherry woodsmoke and star anise. Flavors of blackberry cobbler, sunned boysenberry and cassis reveal hints of violet, licorice and pencil lead. Polished tannins evolve with energy into a long, expansive finish. Ample structure and acidity promise to reward careful aging."
Vintage Notes: The 2018 cabernet sauvignon harvest was ideal across John Anthony’s Napa Valley estates. A mild summer was followed by a warm but temperate October, resulting in a long growing season that provided the wines with richness, structure and finesse.
