Illustrious Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Napa Valley

This stunning, rich, dark Cabernet is from California's top wine region, the Napa Valley. It's renowned for its fabulous reds made from Bordeaux's top grapes. This wine is the result of a hush hush deal - a bit of a bargain if you knew the cellar!

If we could name the winery that made this premium Cabernet, it would be out the door in a flash. But we can't say - that was the proviso for bagging the wine at such a great price. Not only that it was made in a year flagged as "a dream vintage". 2018 was a little cooler than usual, too, which has produced beautifully balanced wines that'll age magnificently, if you can resist drinking them! Illustrious bears all the hallmarks of a great Napa Valley wine – dense blackcurrant with lovely ripeness, a hint of eucalyptus and vanilla scented oak, underpinned by lovely chewy tannins. The perfect mate for a rare steak, roast lamb studded with garlic or a rich casserole. It's still very youthful, so for the next five years, it's best decanted.

"Top-vintage Napa Cabernet that really shows its credentials. Delicious now. Ideal for cellaring too" Clare Tooley
