Review: 2018 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
We last encountered this Copper Cane-designed Napa cabernet in its 2014 vintage, but this 2018 is a big departure from where we last left off. Here we find the arrival of a much more beefy, smoky body — an effect of 2018’s massive fire season, perhaps? — filtered through notes of blackcurrants and some rhubarb. From there, the wine’s overwhelmingly jammy character really starts to show its face, with blueberry and milk chocolate notes taking over. The finish sees plenty of enduring sweetness.
