Cemetery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa valley 2018 750ml
From Behrens Winery
The profound richness of this wine had us pretty floored. Purple black in color with garnet edges, the 2018 Cemetery exhibits aromatic notes of plum, blackberry and cinnamon. Firm integrated tannins lend body and depth to the structure, and a balanced acidity keeps it lively highlighting the nuances of licorice, espresso and boysenberry. This wine feels complete and moves with power and grace. Unfortunately, due to the loss of our 2019 and 2020 vintages, this will be the last bottling of Cemetery until the 2021 is available.
it’s 100% Cab in 100% new wood, and it’s marvelous.
96 pts in Parker, 95 Points Galloni. Only 150 cases made or thereabouts. The 2018 is a muscular vintage and bodes well for long aging if that’s important to you.
