2018 Stewart Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
VINEYARDS: 95% Max Vineyard & 5% Juliana Vineyard

This intense, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon flows with dark notes of clove and leather on the nose. Flavors of cardamom, blackcurrant, and blackberry are beautifully layered on the palate leading into a unique, subtle hint of redwood. The finish is accented with flavors of mocha and is refined by the textured French oak. Decant and drink now, or cellar through 2035.
