Occasional Wine Note:  This is a fantastic wine from a really fantastic winery. We have visited this fantastic estate with our dogs and they really know how to treat their guests. If you're looking for a great tasting experience in Napa, add this to your list. As for the wine, there is a reason Alpha Omega's flagship Era continues to deliver 98, 99, 100 point wines year after year. This is a special wine with so much going on. Ripe dark fruits, chocolate, with a bit of licorice and smoke. Blow your guests away with this beauty, but make sure you only open it for those who will appreciate just how special this wine is.

    Critic Score:  99

    Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, the opaque purple-black colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon ERA explodes with bombastic scents of crème de cassis, blueberry compote, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries plus touches of spice cake, smoked meats, cedar chest and tar with a compelling waft of licorice. Full-bodied, decadently fruited and heady on the palate, it delivers loads of delicate savory and earth nuances among the packed black fruit layers, supported by super firm, super ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with a whole firework display of minerals and spices.

    Critic Score:  99

    Beautiful notes of pure crème de cassis and darker currants, scorched earth, graphite, smoke tobacco, and toasty oak give way to a full-bodied, flawlessly balanced Cabernet with lots of underlying structure, rock star concentration, and the tight, inward, yet impressive style that's common in 2018. Showing more and more minerality with time in the glass, it shuts down relatively quickly and is a wine for the long haul. Do your best to hide bottles for 4-5 years, if not longer, and it should evolve for 30+ years or more.
