This newly released 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon by Ric Forman of Forman Vineyard is outstanding for its price. It is a plush Cabernet offering rich notes of cassis and cocoa immediately upon opening. All the fruit for this Cabernet comes from longtime regarded vintner/winemaker Ric Forman’s own vineyard in the eastern St. Helena hillside. The name 'Chateau La Grande Roche', is a tribute to his estate property. Situated on a steep, southwest facing slope in the Vaca Mountains, this is a true example of "mountain Cabernet" if there ever was one. "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau La Grande Roche is such a delicious wine. A burst of sweet red cherry, red plum, mocha, spice, licorice, and leather race out of the glass. Exuberant and juicy, yet very much medium in body, the 2018 is a wine of pure and total pleasure. All the elements come together in a mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon that hits all the right notes. The Grand Roche is the second selection from the Forman Cabernet, and a great value to boot.” 93 Points, Vinous.
