Force Majeure Red Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
2018 vintage notes
95 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive for its richness and deep structure, this red screams Red Mountain, offering compelling blackberry, crushed rock and espresso tones that build tension toward firm tannins. Best from 2022 through 2031."

This gorgeous Cabernet is settling in to itself beautifully. There are fine tannins here, sure, but they're expertly woven into the sumptuously black-fruited fabric of the wine. Winemaker Todd Alexander cut his teeth making Cabernet for Bryant Family in Napa; his expertise is on full display here and I have no quarrel with drinking it now I've had 2 bottles in the last 6 months and loved both of them) nor with suggesting it will age for 30 years. Both work. -Marcus
