2018 Dakota Shy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


A hillside expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.


"Very classic and compelling Cabernet. The aromas show purposeful and elegant restraint – dark cherry, currant, lavender, and tobacco leaf. In the mouth, this shows a classic, powerful Napa Valley Cabernet with broad fine-grained tannins providing a seamless and finely-filigreed structure and precise balancing acidity. Finishes beautifully with flavors of dried herb, black currant, cedar and cocoa powder that linger. This is a wine that charms with its combination of class, elegance and sumptuousness."

2018 Dakota Shy "TEN" Cabernet Sauvignon


A valley floor expression of two Cabernet vineyards in St Helena and Rutherford.


"A remarkable TEN – leads with dark berry, dried fig, stone and spice notes. Big and powerful in the mouth with a huge dense core of dried cherry, liquid stone, fig compote, cocoa, mineral and spice all framed by beautiful tannins. Powerful and intense but also intricate and layered. Really impressive. This vintage of the TEN will improve with some years in the cellar – or 3-4 hours in the decanter prior to serving."
