2018 Girard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The 2018 vintage for the Girard Cabernet Sauvignon proved nearly ideal. Ample winter rains were followed by lots of spring and early summer sunshine with even Fall temperatures, allowing fruit to ripen with ample flavor and complexity with moderate sugar levels.
Supple red berry and tart cherry aromas on the nose develop into savory spices, cocoa and black plum flavors as they coat the palate. A textural experience, this wine is vibrant on the tongue with undulating flavors of raspberry jam, dusty minerality and vanilla lead to a powerful finish.
