J. Daniel Cuvée
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon - 100 PTS, JD

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée comes from a mix of terroirs (Howell Mountain, Stags Leap, Oakville, Calistoga) and is brought up in 75% new French oak. Heavenly notes of red and black currants, dried tobacco, sandalwood, flowers and spice give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, yet weightless texture that carries awesome tannins, no hard edges and just flawless balance. This majestic, regal wine is going to drink brilliantly for 25 years or more"- Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

“The Lail 2018 J. Daniel Cuvée absolutely sings with the beauty and purity of the vintage, with its bright red fruits (raspberry, cherry and pomegranate), gorgeous texture, and glorious length. The telltale blackberry jam, black cherry, and boysenberry are here as always, as is ripe and rich demeanor. The wonderful balance belies the power and scale of this stunning vintage for J. Daniel Cuvée." — Philippe Melka, Winemaker

“Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, 75% new. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it soars out of the glass with seductive notes of crème de cassis, blueberry preserves and Black Forest cake, followed by suggestions of espresso, yeast extract, black truffles and charcoal plus a fragrant waft of violets. Full-bodied, rich and opulently fruited in the mouth, it has layer upon layer of black fruit preserves, earthy nuances and savory sparks, framed by firm, finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and fragrant."- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
