Post & Beam Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Post & Beam|
Pure, fresh plum, violet and sage aromas lead to a round palate layered with ripe plum, dark berry and black currant flavors. Leather, cedar and dried herb accents, along with whispers of vanilla and oak provide depth, while lithe acidity keeps the wine lifted, balanced and bright. Supple tannins feel like suede-velvet and carry the elegant fruit and spice flavors into a finish that goes on and on. This debut vintage is pure finesse.
Fresh and direct, with a beam of cassis and black cherry paste flavors supported with a graphite edge. Ends with a tug of earth amid the fruit. Drink now through 2026. 14,000 cases made.-James Molesworth
