The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch shows just how compelling this vintage is. Dark and resonant in the glass, but also medium in body, the 2018 is so precise and nuanced. Red cherry, cedar, tobacco and mint add lovely aromatic top notes to this mid-weight yet rich Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 finishes with grippy tannins and tons of energy.
