Tasting Notes

Dave Thompson, The Napa Wine Project
The 2018 Poggi Twin Palms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is deep ruby in the glass; its aromatics are lively and fruit forward in its youth showing notes of ripe blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry. Influences from the barrel aging complement the bouquet rather than detract. The focus is on the fruit with more subtle notes of older cedar box and white pepper. Savory on the palate, especially on the finish, lingers with flavors of black fruits including plum and dark cherry along with dried herbs and some darker spice notes. The texture is an appealing component of this wine, featuring rounded finer grained tannins that feel almost silt-like in character. This wine is already nicely balanced in its youth.

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95 Points
2018 Poggi Cabernet Sauvignon Twin Palms Vineyard Calistoga, Napa Valley, if as deep in color and ripeness as its Diamond Mountain sibling, this is a more supple and immediately rewarding bottling. The nose is a rich melange of dark cherry galette, mulberry, blueberry, black fig, licorice root, clove, cedar, baking spice, dark tobacco and graphite scents. It is fruit-driven if a bit more muscular than expected on the palate and has very polished tannins and the underlying zest to make it food-worthy. The finish is very long and the texture grows more supple with even modest airing. It is delicious now, yet promises another three years of positive evolution. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc & 3% Merlot, 105 cases produced.
