2018 was an exceptional vintage for Napa Valley and thanks to my winemaker, Celia Welch, it was also an incredible year for LAZ. Similar in style to the 2016 vintage, the 2018 release offers a touch more structure and depth on the palate and came together the best way possible in the bottle. This wine is enjoyable to drink now and will continue to evolve if laid down for a few years. “This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows a tremendous range of aromas immediately upon pouring: Baked plums, bright blackberries, fresh red cherries, tarragon, earthy pine duff, baking spices. Soft and satiny at entry, the wine displays an immediate sense of density and generosity, which increases as the wine spends time on the palate. Flavors of baked cherries and plums, dusty blueberries, vanilla, earthy notes, and toasty oak all intermingle. Toward the finish, the lingering impression is of bright purple fruits.”– Celia Welch, Winemaker. 50 cases were produced.
