From The 2019 Napa Valley Cabernets: A Deep Dive
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is once again magnificent. What surprises me most is how much the wine has gained in body over the last few years. Readers will find a Cabernet that marries the open-knit raciness of the 2012 with the darkness and structure of vintages such as 2013 and 2016. If that sounds pretty appealing, well, it is! The 2018 is quite simply one of the most complete and thrilling VHRs to date.

Deep purplish crimson. Rich fruit but still grainy-textured with very marked tannins. Clearly this wine is still developing. Dry not sweet. Very muscular and grown up! But still a baby. 18++ pts. Drinking window: 2024–2045

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has filled out beautifully since I tasted it a year ago. Rich, sumptuous and enveloping, the 2018 captivates all the senses with its sensual personality. All the Vine Hill Ranch signatures come through so beautifully. The 2018 possesses tremendous intensity as it continues to open in the glass, revealing myriad shades of nuance. Black cherry, lavender, spice and chocolate all flesh out on a wine that balances the sumptuousness of the 2012 with some of the energy (but not the size) of the 2013. 98 pts.

The 2018 VHR Cabernet Sauvignon is simply spectacular in this vintage. As this slowly unwinds in the glass it gives way to striking aromatics of dark currants and blackberries which come together with fresh spring florals, exotic spices, graphite, crushed gravel and subtle hints of licorice that all emerge beautifully from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, polished and fine-tuned with excellent precision. It goes on to display remarkable overall balance, with a gorgeous core of beautiful fresh dark fruits, which are highlighted by a lovely touch of acidity adding a wonderful sense of freshness and vibrancy all the way through the long, graceful finish. While the 2018 is already showing flashes of brilliance at this early stage, there is no doubt that it is destined for an even brighter future ahead. 98 pts.
