Wine Advocate 98
“Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of each of the single-vineyard wine sites (Dr. Crane, Las Piedras and Vine Hill Ranch), plus fruit from Oakville Ranch and Weitz vineyards. It was aged for 22 months in French oak, 100% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it charges out of the gate with energetic scents of warm cassis, blackberry pie, boysenberries and wild blueberries plus hints of mocha, black truffles, fertile loam and lavender, with a waft of Chinese five spice. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and decadent with a velvety texture and fantastic freshness, it finishes long and layered.” – Lisa Perotti-Brown
These wines are made by Sam Kaplan, whose name should be familiar to readers. The production is relatively small, from 100 cases each for the Las Piedras and Dr. Crane, to slightly more for the Napa blend of Dr. Crane, Piedras and the Weitz Vineyard.
