2018 Kuleto Villa Vista Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Our 2018 Villa Vista Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and dense with aromas of red and black fruits, black pepper, Flavors of red licorice, and cherry fill the palate followed by a beautiful red fruit and oak finish.
The 2018 growing season was one of the mildest and smoothest in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to good fruit set in most varietals and moderate weather throughout the year made for ideal growing conditions. There were no major heat spikes, which gave us longer hang-time and great ripening on the vine. While a fairly long harvest, the 2018 crop delivered fruit with complex flavors and was of excellent quality.
