Calculated Risk Winery Barrel Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, California



Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, red chili pepper, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, herbs and earth.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Still young, but already enjoyable.

This 4 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Nicely balanced with a soft and spicy mouthfeel, and good by itself as a sipping wine.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$85.
