Aperture 2018 Oliver Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Limited new Cabernet from Aperture. a great up-and-coming label from Sonoma's Alexander Valley. Limited.
98 Robert Parker:
"Deep ruby-purple, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oliver Ranch Vineyard slowly unfolds its wings to pure violet, cassis, tobacco leaves and pencil shavings, bright notes of mint chocolate, cedar and exotic spices. The palate is stunning
, fanning out seamlessly from graphite to chocolate and intense, perfectly ripe blackcurrant fruit. The tannins are extraordinarily pixelated, the freshness is bright but integrated, and it has a Goldilocks ripeness! An extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley.
725 cases were made."
