With a prolonged hang time - and the latest harvest to date on Daou Mountain - this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is not only concentrated, but silky and ultra-generous in fruit and aromatics. The dazzling texture of Devil's Food Cake, boysenberry preserves, offers a most sensual mouthfeel that is more of a caress than a grip. The wine's inherent calcareous nature weaves its chalky minerality through a field of violets and sweet tobacco. Aged 30 months in an assortment of high-end French oak barrels, with extra tight grain and a medium-long toast
Jeb Dunnuck Review
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is another magical wine from this estate. Deep purple-hued, with full-bodied aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, toasted spices, tobacco, mint, and cedar pencil, it's just a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon offering remarkable purity, building, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. Showing the pure, elegant, structured style of this vintage beautifully, it has the structure to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and will have 20+ years of prime drinking. Drink 2023-2043.
Wine Advocate Review
Still in barrel, the 2018 Patrimony is shaping up to be an archetypal Paso Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is layered and deep, exploding with mint chocolate, iron, crushed blackberries, violet, cedar and cigar aromas. Structurally, it's surprisingly fresh and silky. The fruits are pure and concentrated, but it's lifted and juicy, with incredibly fine, dust-like tannins and a very long, nuanced finish that lifts toward a very pretty mineral, floral note. Gorgeous! This is expected to age in 100% new French oak for 30 months. Drink now-2040.
Wine Tasting Notes
This wine definitely qualifies as the most elegant PATRIMONY Cabernet to date. The longer hanging on the vine provides a great tannin structure while maintaining Freshness. The nose is layered and complex, exploding with chocolate, cooked blackberries, violets, cedar and cigar box. On the palate, crushed stones give it a dimension rarely seen in a new world wine. The fruit is pure and potent yet very fine while being accompanied with a kaleidoscope of flavor ranging from blueberries, blackberries, dulce de leche and a touch of rose petal while having a very mineral and floral note. This wine will show its potential after it ages in the bottle for several years. With an immense structure, this will age and improve for decades.
