2018 Portrait Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes

2018 Portrait Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville AVA, Napa Valley Glass Slipper Vineyard

As the nose discloses subtle finesse and complexity with precious aromas of crushed rocks, sage, and blackberries, the impact of the wine produces a burst of bright intensity.

All the ingredients are there to satisfy your senses: hedonistic black fruit, flagrant acidity, striking richness and powerful tannins are in perfect balance to secure collectability and long-term drinkability.

The mouthfeel starts with great impact and continues with a lovely, soft texture and a long complex finish packed with flavors of licorice, espresso beans, and boysenberry.
