RewaCabernet Sauvignon 2018
Into its fourth vintage, Rewa just released their estate Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard in Napa Valley's Coombsville AVA. We tasted this wine a few weeks ago and immediately recognized that it is their best vintage yet. Winemaker Celia Welch and viticulturist Mike Wolf have been working together at Rewa since their inaugural vintage. This is the same duo I first met when visiting Scarecrow in 2006 and then at Lindstrom. Aromas immediately pop from the bottle and the mouthfeel is luxurious. As Celia describes this newest release, "The 2018 vintage of Rewa Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible with notes of fresh violets, dried herbs and boysenberry. The palate begins with black plum, blueberry compote, and cassis with graphite, flint, dried herbs, and dried flowers adding interest and further complexity. Although the wine is dense and highly concentrated, the vineyard's volcanic tuff and cobble soils lend sufficient minerality to the fresh character and structure of this classically styled wine." 307 cases were produced.
