Borne of Fire 2018 (USA: WA - Columbia Valley) (ID# 2917)

Name Borne of Fire 2018 (ID# 2917)
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region USA: WA - Columbia Valley
Notes "Just bottled, the 100% varietal 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a juicy, fruit-forward, delicious style as well as notes of ripe black cherries, tobacco, and leafy herbs. With plenty of fruit, ripe tannins, and loads to love, drink it over the coming 5-7 years." (Jeb Dunnuck) "A gutsy little red and what it lacks in polished it makes up for with bold blackberry, cedar and spice flavors." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon opens to a core of red and black fruit on the nose, with a dusty floral essence. Medium-bodied, the straightforward expression offers a balanced structure and ends with a clean finish, leaving soft flavors of dried herbs and black cherry that linger in the mouth." (Wine Advocate) "Aromas of plum, struck match and spice lead to plump, lightly sweet plum flavors. The oak is pleasantly dialed back." (Wine Enthusiast)
