2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Broken Rock Vineyard
A wine showing its impressive pedigree, regal and poised. Earthy aromas wrapped in heady dark fruit, accented with notes of cedar. The palate opens with blueberry and plum, giving way to dried herbs, soft leather and subtle spice. Polished tannins support dynamic acidity for a complex and beautifully structured wine that moves over the palate with synchronous expression.
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
One of our favorite places in Napa just off of Silverado Trail, this prestigious site lies perfectly placed at the base of Atlas Peak. Fruit from this area draws on the best of both worlds - hillside structure and rich valley floor flavor. Elite vineyard designer & operator, Bill Hill, owns Broken Rock, and the fields he has developed are consistently found in the WS Top 100.
