2018 Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon
Beautifully complex and soft aromatics of violets, cola, ripe fig and plum linger on the nose. The generous entry opens with bright, ripe blackberry and boysenberry, softening through the mid-palate with black cherry, cocoa, and allspice. Notes of licorice and tarragon on the finish lead to fine-grained tannins that effortlessly round this young, yet so approachable Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Not only does this come across like a much more expensive Napa Valley Cab, but it is exceedingly approachable – especially for its youth. A splash of juicy black raspberry and plum engage with dark chocolate tannins – and with a slight grainy quality, a textural delight. High-toned acidity puts a light on savory notes of briar, sandalwood and black tea.” 93 points, the Tasting Panel
A Wine Spectator Smart Buy - “This red delivers vivid plum and blackberry fruit, with polished edges and light violet and anise hints in the background. Remains unencumbered by toast notes, so the fruit sails on nicely.” 90 points, Wine Spectator
