The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Revana Estate Vineyard comes from a 9-acre vineyard outside of St. Helena that was planted by Jim Barber over 25 years ago. It’s another impossible to resist Cabernet from this label that’s loaded with plum and darker berry fruits as well as notes of chocolate, tobacco leaf, and cedarwood. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and textured, it’s a beauty. Drink bottles over the coming 15 years or more.

A bright, juicy and engaging style, with a burst of raspberry, red currant and boysenberry compote flavors up front, followed by licorice root, sweet spice and mocha accents through the finish. Shows brambly energy from beginning to end. Best from 2022 through 2036.
This Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the character of the historic St. Helena sub-appellation of the Napa Valley, which has produced some of the world’s most sought after wines. Only the four highest quality vineyard blocks are selected from the Estate Vineyard to craft a wine with a true sense of place as a representation of vineyard and vintage.
