2018 Westwood "Legend" Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
This single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the acclaimed Ashe Estate on the east side of the Oakville appellation. Dark hued, this deeply textured, plush Cabernet Sauvignon shows hints of violet, graphite, and tobacco along with blackberry and cassis. The wine has great balance with its full, well-integrated tannins, richly concentrated mouthfeel and persistent finish.

Combining 97% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Petit Verdot from the sustainably farmed Ashe Vineyard in the Oakville AVA, this sophisticate has a classic nose of cassis, black plum, forest floor, and graphite. Elegant and well balanced, with deeply textured tannins and a long finish, it is the quintessen-tial Napa Cab. Aged in 100% French oak for 19 months.
93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
The only Cabernet (from Oakville), the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a dense purple color as well as terrific notes of crème de cassis, espresso, scorched earth, and tobacco. Rich, full-bodied, and structured on the palate, it's going to evolve for 15-20 years.
