2018 The Vice Cabernet Sauvignon 'The House' Napa Valley

California | Cabernet Sauvignon

"Drinking well above its price point, The Vice 'The House' Cabernet is “the ultimate expression of a big Napa Cab.”  Powerful, plush, and concentrated, you’ll experience aromas and flavors of violets, black fruit, mocha, and cigar with well-structured tannins and a long finish.  Under $30, this is a superior value out of Napa."

Staff Note

“Some cellar wine for a special occasion, others enjoy it with no justification. Our Signature House Cabernet Sauvignon was sustainably crafted to make every day, a very special occasion.”

- Malek Amrani, Winemaker

""The House” Cabernet Sauvignon Batch #18 was luxuriously crafted with minimal interference in both the vineyards and the cellar. Traditional winemaking includes extended skin maceration, aerative pumpovers and nearly 2 years of French Oak aging.
 
On the nose, the power and tenacity of the aromas are unmistakably new world character, but when tasted, this wine is the ultimate expression of a big Napa Cab. Plush core of concreted flavors, massive and well-structured tannins coat your entire palette with a satiny mouthfeel. The flavor spectrum is wide from start to the end of its very long finish, ranging from black fruit, dried violet, mocha, black tea and cigar. 22 months in 100% French Oak barrels (40% new) Sustainable farming and winemaking practices. 2020 Cases crafted. Released Date: October 15th, 2019."
