The wine is pure black fruited showing notes of graphite, gunpowder, crushed rocks, violets and ripe blackberries. There is plenty of tannin here but it is perfectly ripe which helps to frame the finish without clipping it.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery Vineyard is a new wine from this range, emerges from a parcel in St. Helena, you guessed it, right by the cemetery. Inky, rich and explosive, the Cemetery captures all the exuberance that makes wines from St. Helena so appealing, especially Cabernets from this central part of town. Rich red fruit, sweet floral notes, spice and crushed rocks abound. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this gem. What a wine!

Lastly, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery Vineyard, which comes from a great site just beside Las Piedras, is another beautiful wine in the making. Saturated purple, with notes of blueberry and plum fruits, notes of ground herbs, violets, and underbrush, full-bodied richness, and ripe, sweet tannins, it's another 2018 I suspect will have plenty of upfront charm and appeal yet also age gracefully.
