Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 | Historic Coombsville Cabernet
Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 presents a dark opaque black center with crimson-violet tones towards the rim, and dark staining tears. The wine leads with powerful notes of black current, smashed raspberry, and blackberry. Woodsy notes begin to appear in the form of clove, allspice, and cedar, while dried violets, candied plum compote, and vanilla take form. The palate is warm and generous with high tones of cherry balsamic and licorice. The mouthfeel is warm and spicy, with a rich tone of sappy underbrush on the finish.
One of the juiciest, most luscious 2018s we’ve tasted yet from Napa, this bottle makes clear why some vineyards become legends—for just $40. We bargained for some of the most famous and historic Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville—an estate that’s supplied grapes to Pahlmeyer and Joseph Phelps’ Insignia—and came away with a $40 deal that can’t be topped.
Exciting Unique opportunity
With terroir of that pedigree, these bottles usually price out at $279 a pop—no surprise there. But we’ve tapped the same estate vineyard and brought that transcendent Coombsville concentration down to just $40 per bottle for our members. That alone will have many of our Napa value hounds hopping out of their seats and reaching for their wallets.
So, the land sits in a caldera (formed by a collapsed volcanic rock), creating a microclimate with some of the coolest temperatures in Napa. Plus added refreshment thanks to its proximity to the San Pablo Bay. While, the growing season lasts forever, giving vines the chance to extract all the mineral tension and volcanic intensity from the soil below.
Likely your only chance
Yet, this was an incredibly limited-run production, and the descriptions are accurate. So, this is a top-notch Napa Cab that will sell out in no time. Today, we’re thrilled to share it. Don’t wait on securing your share of Editorial, because we can’t guarantee it will ever be back.
