2018 Revana Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
94 points - Jeb Dunnuck
This Cabernet is powerful and brooding that promises even more to those who can wait.
A mild spring in the 2018 growing season allowed for a long and prolific flowering phase leading to abundant cluster development, with cluster weight ultimately being 20 to 30 percent heavier than average. The summer months brought cool to warm weather with no heat spikes leading to long, slow, and steady ripening. This caused the harvest to occur late in the season, allowing our vineyard team plenty of time to pick at optimum ripeness.
Powerful aromatics with notes of cherry compote, violet, leather, blackberry, cedar, and earth.
Fresh and powerful flavors on the palate that are bright with fullness and depth. Black and blue fruits are accented with notes of lilac, and brown sugar.
