2018 Aperture Cellars AJE Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon | Alexander Valley Sonoma County California 750ml


Focusing first on the cabernet fruit from four mineral-rich, volcanic soil sites nestled on cooler hillside slopes in the Alexander Valley, this vintage's blend is uniquely crafted with delicate inclusions of merlot, malbec, and petit verdot. | Aperture Cellars

World famous photographer Andy Katz is "changing the way the world sees wine" through his lens while his son, Jesse Katz is "changing the way the world drinks" with his inspired and accomplished winemaking talent. Together they present a polished and approachable Cabernet aged in French Oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The black fruit influence on the palate is welcoming and expands in complexity with dark chocolate & espresso. Given a good decant, the potential reaches further and pleasant hints of cedar and juniper lay out in an open-work fashion across the finish.| Falling Bright

Opaque ruby purple in the glass, it has an incredible perfume loaded with oral nuances, its cassis and boysenberry fruit tempered by a mineral streak and accented by notes of dried thyme, fresh tobacco leaves, mint chocolate, clover and bay leaves. The palate is stunning, powerful but silky and fresh, lushly fruited and nuanced and finishing very long. While this 2018 is approachable and utterly delicious now, it will reward cellaring and should be very long lived. | 97 points, Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
