Heritage School 2018 Creekside Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Creekside Vineyard is a powerful, rich wine that captures all the natural intensity of this site. Bruising, potent tannins wrap around a core of crème de cassis, chocolate, new leather, licorice and plum. This is a decidedly opulent wine, with tons of grip and plenty of persistence. but it is also compacted by its tannic heft. Time in the glass brings out a more floral character and brighter tonalities of fruit.

Lastly, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Creekside reveals a similar dense purple hue as well as textbook Cabernet notes of blue fruits, cassis, lead pencil shavings, orange blossom, and candied violets. Just gorgeous on the palate as well, it has silky tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and medium to full-bodied richness. Drink this classic Calistoga Cabernet over the coming two decades.
