Winemaker Notes

The exceptional 2018 growing season produced a stunning expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, with alluring aromas of black Mission fig, black raspberry, and chocolate, as well as notes of sage, cardamom, crème brûlée, and anise. On the palate, flavors of elderberry, plum, blueberry, red licorice, and violet glide across silky tannins, with bright, balanced acidity contributing to a long, focused finish.

Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 0.8% Cabernet Franc, 0.2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
This is streamlined in feel despite the obvious power here, thanks to a bright mineral and sanguine spine that courses underneath the mix of plum, cassis and cherry reduction flavors. Roasted applewood note through the finish adds energy. Rock solid. Drink now through 2031.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon brings excellent firmness and depth of fruit onto the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits expressive aromas and flavors of anise, black fruit, and oak. Enjoy it with the cut from a crusted prime rib. (Tasted: May 19, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
JS 92
James Suckling

Aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, dried leaves, cocoa powder, walnuts and peppercorns. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and vivid acidity. Fresh and crunchy with a savory finish. Drink from 2022.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

A burst of red-cherry flavor introduces this clean, fragrant cabernet. There’s nothing superripe or hyperextracted about it. The wine feels fresh and friendly, the tannins expressed in floral hints of beebalm and savory conifer notes to gentle their ferrous structure. It tastes like well-grown cabernet and has the stamina to age.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
