Heir Apparent Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2018
The dark ruby color of the Heir Apparent 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is enticing. Expensive blackberry and cassis aromas are jumping off the glass. On the palate, it has a concentrated body, harmonious tannins with a black peppery, fresh finish. Intriguing and full body, it is very rewarding with red meat and grilling fairs.
2018 Vintage Recap
Following a long growing season characterized by moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer, California’s 2018 harvest played out like a dream for winegrowers in regions across the state. Harvest began anywhere from 10 days to three weeks later than in 2017, and vintners are reporting exceptional quality, thanks to consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures, which allowed the grapes to mature slowly.
