2018 THE MASCOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY
Tasting Notes from The Mascot Wines, “Following a vintage full of changing conditions and demanding decision points, the steady and pleasant progress of the 2018 vintage left our team, at times, in limbo… This gentle nature of the season—is confirmed in the subtle, ethereal power of the vintage, which reveals itself first in the deep, brooding aromas of dark fruit, black tea, and herbal notes. The texture expands around a lifted structure, as powdery tannins gently resolve. This diffused, enigmatic softness is anchored on the mid-palate by a gratifying density, which prepares the senses for a flourish of hidden energy and vivid detail that illuminates the finish…”
★ from THE HARLAN Family Estates – THE MASCOT 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (ultra-limited).
Extended Notes from Edward: ” The 2018 Mascot is a compelling Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. DEEP and POWERFUL yet elegantly balanced with dense fruit layers, and shimmering waves of energy… Perfectly Seamless textural, with a Pure Opulence of deep black fruits: wild blueberries, blackberry pie, figs, dark-chocolates, dusted mocha and espresso notes all wonderfully penetrate the palate, with a 45-second plus finish that echoes the Pedigree and Magnificence of these Grand Cru Estates…
Gorgeous and Gregarious Wines like this are often difficult to explain; because the Esteemed Pedigree is Mesmerizing and Virtually unobtainable… Wil Harlan, is the son of Bill Harlan, and the Wine produced from these impeccable Grad Cru Harlan Estates are highly sought-after worldwide with bottles ranging in prices from $500-$3,000 per bottle, the 2018 Mascot Cabernet is truly a secret and future cult wine like no other. With fruit sources of Napa Royalty directly from: the palatial HARLAN Cabernet Sauvignon —which is perched atop a PROMONTORY of Cult Wines — there’s a Napa Valley BOND emanating from these vines… a deeply rooted passion… and this 2018 Vintage is stunning with perfection.” CALIHIWINES 100 POINTS – This is a Perfect Wine! *recommended decant: 3-6 hours, enjoy right now thru 2035+.
