MAG- Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Paso Robles, CA) MAGNUM
Producer Notes: This wine definitely qualifies as the most elegant PATRIMONY Cabernet to date. The longer hanging on the vine provides a great tannin structure while maintaining Freshness. The nose is layered and complex, exploding with chocolate, cooked blackberries, violets, cedar and cigar box. On the palate, crushed stones give it a dimension rarely seen in a new world wine. The fruit is pure and potent yet very fine while being accompanied with a kaleidoscope of flavor ranging from blueberries, blackberries, dulce de leche and a touch of rose petal while having a very mineral and floral note. This wine will show its potential after it ages in the bottle for several years. With an immense structure, this will age and improve for decades.
Tasting Panel, 100 Points: "With a prolonged hang time – and the latest harvest to date on Daou Mountain – this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is not only concentrated, but silky and ultra-generous in fruit and aromatics. The dazzling texture of Devil’s Food cake, boysenberry preserves, offers a most sensual mouthfeel that is more of a caress than a grip. The wine’s inherent calcareous nature weaves its chalky minerality through a field of violets and sweet tobacco. Aged 30 months in an assortment of high end French oak barrels, with extra tight grain and a medium-long toast."
Wine Advocate, 98+ Points: "The 2018 Patrimony is an extraordinarily long, layered and pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Made entirely from free-run juice and aged 30 months in new French oak barrels, it offers stunning aromatics: blueberry and blackberry preserves are accented by garrigue, wildflowers and meaty tones, with pure wafts of mint chocolate. The palate has a bursting sensation from its fresh acidity and chocolaty tannins, driving you to take another sip. It's everything it promised from barrel, and it can be expected to gain complexity in bottle over the next 20+ years."
