This cabernet sauvignon presents with deep, dark reds and purples. Aromas are opulent with ripe blackberry, black plum, cassis, chocolate, and toasted oak. A rich, dense profile follows with flavors of cassis and ripe black fruits, espresso, mocha, and molasses with subtle oak influence. This is a deep, structured wine with excellent fine-grain tannin.

The 2018 growing season started with a relatively mild winter and spring. Winter and early spring provided enough water to fill the lakes at Dollarhide Ranch. With a warm July, markedly cooler temperatures in August, absent of heat spikes, the weather remained ideal through September and October. Early October saw a small amount of rain, but warm weather and dry breezes followed, allowing the grapes to hang on the vines longer, further developing their flavors.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, mature and hard cheese, and poultry dishes.
