2018 Jackpot Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep, dark garnet red colour and aromas of black currant, leather, and subtle notes of oak are followed by ripe cassis, blackberry compote, and raw cacao bean. This is a rich Cabernet with a powerful palate and a silky, toasty finish. This is a wine that commands attention. Pair it with any kind of celebration and a firey grill.
The 2018 growing season got off to a great start but in mid-July smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest blocked much of the sunlight which slowed down ripening dramatically. The result of this was wines with lower alcohol levels, ripe fruit flavours and balanced acidity.
