Deluge 2018 California Storm
Our Deluge brand is reserved for a special wine. Our Deluge 2018 Storm is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the Spring Mountain appellation on the western hills of the Napa Valley and 35% Cabernet Franc from Lodi.
Low yields of three-to-four tons per acre, a meticulous sorting at harvest, an extended maceration during fermentation and several months of ageing in French and American oak barrels complete this winning blend. This wine has a beautiful dark color in the glass with dark fruit like black currant, blueberry, blackberry and plum. The toasted oak is bursting in the finish. Aromas develop in the finish with notes of cigar box, vanilla and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine has layers of silky smooth tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc create a perfect marriage of two great terroirs. Good acidity and a medium-to-long intensity put the final touch on this future powerhouse.
Serve our 2018 Deluge Storm with a rack of lamb, roasted pork loin or a grilled New York strip steak. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Pan Seared Steak.
