2018 Chakana Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - 90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Coming from 10-year-old Cabernet vines planted in the sandy, loamy soils of the estate vineyard in the Uco Valley, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate sports a deep purple/ruby color as well as an herbal bouquet of blackcurrants, green tobacco, menthol, and spring flowers. With medium-bodied richness, good overall balance, and ripe, polished tannins, it's a terrific, rock-solid Cabernet that delivers ample character. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years."

"Notes of eucalyptus open the nose and then give way to sweet cherry aromas. A savory palate offers ripe berry flavors joining notes of licorice and menthol that extend into a medium-long finish. This wine was matured for 12 months in oak barrels, just enough time to soften the tannins and preserve good acidity. - Jesica Vargas"
