Waypoint Winery Lowrey Vineyard Basalt Ledge Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lowrey Vineyard Basalt Ledge offers a touch more purity and elegance, with beautiful cassis fruit as well as notes of damp earth, chocolate, and flowers. With a great mid-palate, full-bodied richness, and silky tannins, this beauty has everything you could want from a great Napa Cabernet. It too should keep for 10-15 years, if not longer.
The 2018 Lowrey Vineyard - Basalt Ledge is dense, creamy and expansive. Black cherry, mocha, lavender, spice and new leather fill out the layers beautifully in this ample, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon from Waypoint. All the elements are so well balanced here. Both Lowrey wines in this lineup emerge from the Upper Range development in the hills above Rutherford.
Burly in juicy waves of black and red berry, this lengthy, complex and ripe wine is intense and powerfully built. Sage, crushed rock and firm tannins give it an edgy grip, lending a nice complement to the power. Enjoy from 2028-2035.
