Description

Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon drinks well on release but will also age beautifully for decades. Deep ruby colour core and purple rim. Waves of blackcurrant and dark plum aromas waft from the glass with hints of violets and tobacco. The dry and rich palate is a love affair between bright acidity, chewy tannins and ripe fruity flavours. Crème de cassis, blackberries and sweet tobacco flavours with a whip of leather. Closes in a long, long finish with everything in balance.

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 5% Malbec. The grapes come from the McQueen, Lefore and Figgins vineyards in Walla Walla Valley. Walla Walla Valley is an American Viticultural Area (AVA) within Washington State that extends partly into the northeastern corner of Oregon.

The wine ages in new (67%) and second-fill French oak barrels and puncheons, and Italian concrete.

Ageing potential: Drink 5 years from vintage year or cellar for up to 15–20 years.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

– 95 POINTS

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% each of Malbec and Merlot) comes from a handful of sites in the Walla Walla Valley and spent 23 months in 67% new French oak. Classic, old-school notes of blackcurrants, leafy tobacco, earth, saddle leather, and spicy herbs gives way to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with notable balance, a great mid-palate, ripe yet building tannins, and a great finish. This pure, clean, classic Cabernet will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20 years or more. It’s beautifully done.

 – 93 POINTS

 Aromas of blackcurrants, dried violets, walnuts and sweet tobacco. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins. Firm and structured with fresh acidity and a gently leafy undertone. Try from 2023.

 Displaying a deep ruby core and purple highlights at the rim, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fresh, ripe and juicy fruit tones of Chambord, crème de cassis and plum reduction before offering elements of lavender and violet in the glass. Full-bodied and juicy, the palate is generous, showing dusty tannins that will take some time to subside. It ends with persistent flavors of crème de violette, stewed blackberries and clove. The wine rested for about two years in two-thirds new French oak barrels before being bottled.
