Lightpost 2018 Cabernet Reserve
2018 Lightpost Cabernet Sauvignon “Reserve”, Paso Robles
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94 Points
This fine wine is seductively creamy and elegantly fruity to the nose, where sweet red plum, sour dark cherry, dark boysenberry, a hint of blood orange, vanilla, coffee toffee, baking-spice, mace, and tobacco leaf scents find harmony. It proves as elegant as hoped on the palate, showing wonderfully polished tannins, quiet zest and textural suppleness. The flavors are a lovely, genteel mélange of dark cherry, Cherry Bounce liqueur, blueberry, sweet red plum sauce, violet, pomegranate molasses, coriander seed, toffee, star anise and orange peel tea. Delicious and super-long , the flavors are already delightfully dinner-worthy. Expect another few years of improvement. 401 cases produced.
