Rare new release of Memento Mori's Cult Cabernet from Napa Valley. Limited new 2018 vintage.

99 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just about pure perfection in a glass, the Memento Mori 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 100% varietal sourced from top sites including Dr. Crane, Las Piedras, Weitz, Oakville Ranch, and Vine Hill. This deep purple/blue-hued beauty boasts a stunning bouquet of pure crème de cassis and blackberry fruits as well as complex forest floor, graphite, chocolate, and spicy oak. Full-bodied, rich, sexy, yet incredibly elegant and seamless on the palate, this is pure Napa Valley magic that has appeal even today yet the class to evolve for 30 years in cold cellars."

98 Points Robert Parker:  'Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Memento Mori 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. 1,100 cases were made"

Sourced from Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Vine Hill Ranch, and Oakville Ranch vineyards, the Memento Mori 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple core enhanced by the decadently layered fruit of this formidable wine. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, this spotlights the grace and beauty of the 2018 vintage in a package that’s both ready to drink and built for long-term aging.
