Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Just another super example of cabernet from the 2018 vintage. This is a thoroughly scrumptious cabernet selling for less than $50 – crazy stuff quite frankly because it punches so far above its weight it’s not funny. Perfumed notes of blackcurrant and mulberry with a square or two of dark chocolate. The palate is generous and harnessed by fine tannins and beautifully integrated oak. There’s a fine sinewy core that gives it structural purpose in that classically cabernet style. If you’re looking for a cellaring wine of 10 or more years for less than $50 then this baby is right on the money.
