Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Review

Well, this right here is why Napa is our fine wine region. This is one of those Cabs you hear about. This style of wine defines not only Napa, but the wonderful sloping hills of the Stag’s Leap District in the cooler southern corner of the valley. Cab thrives on structure and that’s all this wine is. It has an absolute, balanced, and powerful structure. Yes, there are aromas of pepper and blackberries but it’s the mouthfeel for the win. The tannins are woven seamlessly into the deep dark depth of fruit, which is lifted by an excellent natural acidity. The balance on the palate is undeniable. You can age this wine but it's drinking well right now. You will spend on this bottle and probably need to join a waiting list, but it’s all worth it.
