*7R* 2018 Canard Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley, CA)

Weight: 7R

Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Calistoga, Napa Valley, California

Canard Vineyard's style is what managing director Adam Fox says is "pre-Parker" - a focus on fruit & freshness, restrained oak, and a focus entirely on the vineyard as opposed to a celebrity winemaker with fruit sourced from all over the valley. All Canard does is estate fruit - if they don't grow it, they don't make wine! The 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows notes of redcurrant, earthy spice, and tobacco, with polished, silky tannins.
