JOSEPH PHELPS Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2018

The 2018 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon impresses as it instantly opens to inviting aromas of cherries, blackberries and ripe plums which are laced with exotic spices, forrest floor, dark cacao and hints of cigar box nuances that form the expressive nose. On the palate this is full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a round texture. There is a lovely touch of underlying acidity which frames the layers of ripe red and dark fruits that persist all the way through the finish. The 2018 is fantastic in its youth, however this will likely become even more compelling with some short term cellaring.
