2018 Parallel Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"The wine is dark in color with excellent aromas of dark fruit, black currant, cedar box, floral and mountain herbs. On the palate layers of plum, blackberries and currants with hints of summer savory, thyme and a touch of vanilla from the French Oak. The tannin structure and acidity add a lingering complexity and length to the wine. Showing well now and will hit its prime in 5-15 years."

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"This unabashedly ripe and robust wine is 100% varietal and made by Philippe Melka and team. Gravel, dust, mocha and earthy sage ride atop substantial tannin, with length and breadth, strong notes of toasted oak and currant."

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Captivator Black Diamond Reserve is a big, full-bodied, old school, slightly rustic, yet cetrainly outstanding wine that sports a dense purple color, notes of ripe black and blue fruits, minty herbs, truffle and tobacco, chewy tannins and a good finish."
