2018 Chaleur Estate
Exotic and alluring in its youth, the 2018 Chaleur Estate presents an intense nose of sandalwood, blueberry and Red Mountain’s signature combination of herbs and sun-drenched soil. Dense and saturated on the palate, intense black currant and lavender are just beginning to peek out from behind a close-knit structure commanded by French Oak barrels. Persistent fruit flavors and fantastic length promise the cellar potential this long-lived cuvee is known for.
In the lead on this 2018 Minuit, Malbec delivers an extraordinarily dark color and aromas of blackberry, black peppercorn and cocoa, with Cabernet Sauvignon providing intriguing cedar and graphite notes. Slightly more tightly wound then the prior vintage, substantial fruit begins to emerge as the wine opens. Classic Malbec fruit purity dominates on the palate, with enticing cracked pepper carried on a long finish supported by Cabernet tannin. Well-balanced throughout, with welcome freshness and energy on a moderate to full-bodied structure, this wine should continue to deliver and improve for a decade or more.
Mocha and milk chocolate notes from French oak integrate with beautiful cassis, dried cranberry, and cedar aromas on this 2018 D2. This wine is instantly delicious on the palate with an inviting warm, soft entry. It rapidly builds in intensity of fruit mid-palate, offering remarkable length on the finish, with Red Mountain Cabernet (16% of the blend) apparent in the texture.
