Vineyard 29 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 750ml


1 bottle in stock.

Expressive and powerful, the 2018 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Aromas of ripe black currants, wild blackberries, sweet chocolate, with hints of spice and minerality lead way to a tremendously rich and juicy entry, beautiful balance and a firm, ripe tannin profile. Intensely concentrated red and black fruits are complimented by the signature crushed rock and earth-driven characters that Aida is known for. Nuances of anise, violets and pencil shavings contribute to the complexity of this special wine. The powerful, super-expressive Aida Estate Cabernet will undoubtedly age for well over two decades.

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong: 98pts
COMMENTARY: The 2018 Vineyard 29 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Napa Valley's most impressive wines! TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of black fruits, forest floor, wild herbs and, chocolate dust, some oak in the background too. Serve it with a well-seasoned, oven-roasted Porchetta. (Tasted: February 25, 2022, Napa, CA)

Jeb Dunnuck: 97pts
Including 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate comes from a rocky site in St. Helena and spent 20 months in French oak. It's another gorgeously balanced, elegant, yet concentrated wine from this team that has classic notes of dark currants, blackberries, savory herbs, chocolate, and lead pencil. Building nicely with time in the glass, it's full-bodied and has a layered, elegant texture, plenty of tannins, and a great finish, all making for a captivating Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Give bottles 4-5 years if possible, and it's going to evolve for 25+ years or more.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 97pts

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate has a deep garnet-purple color and flamboyant notes of stewed black and red plums, boysenberries and black currant cordial plus touches of bay leaves, tilled loam, charcoal and new leather. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with tightly knit black fruit and earthy layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory. Rating: 97+
