Winemaking Notes

The 2018 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes hand-selected from premier vineyards in Alexander Valley, Dry Creek and Rockpile in Sonoma County. This deeply-flavored wine features layers of fruit and a long, intense finish.

The 2018 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, full-bodied with great structure and plush, chocolatey tannins. The wine opens with lovely aromas of blackberry, licorice and toasted spice. On the palate, the dense and juicy mouthfeel features blackberry compote and rhubarb pie notes that carry through a strong finish lingering of oak spice.

“Lots of currants, vanilla and dark berries with walnuts and chocolate. It’s full-bodied, layered and flavorful. This is a rich cab and needs time to come together. Try after 2021.”
