Abreu Cappella St. Helena 2018

$650

Packed, but this also ripples with tension and energy, as bitter plum, black currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors collide with sweet bay leaf, savory, tobacco, loam and licorice root notes. When the dust settles, this is an expansive display of power and refinement, with everything in proportion. And then a long, smoldering cast iron note echoes, adding more cut and drive. Wow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2025 through 2045. 218 cases made.
