The flagship cuvée, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 75% new French oak. Rocking levels of cassis, graphite, vanilla, scorched earth, and tobacco all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet that has building tannins, a terrific, deep, layered mid-palate, and a great finish. It's still tight and backward on the palate, and in need of 4-5 years of bottle age, but it's a beautiful wine in the making. 2024-2049
Wonderful blackberry and blueberry aromas with tar and ink. Pipe tobacco. Full body and chewy tannins that are lightly dry and toned. Creamy and textured. A beautiful finish. Complete and fine-textured. Try after 2023.
