The flagship 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Alejandro Bulgheroni comes from a selection made by winemakers Philippe Melka and Michel Rolland, mostly from Rutherford and Oakville fruit. Aged 20 months in 78% new French oak, it has incredible aromatics of black and blue fruits, spring flowers, and graphite to go with a massive, full-bodied, concentrated style on the palate that somehow stays graceful, weightless, and elegant. This tour de force in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is guaranteed to put a smile on your face over the coming 20-25+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Pure perfection, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard is a nuclear fruit bomb of a wine, offering massive richness and depth while being as graceful as a ballerina, with no sensation of weight or heaviness. Classic To-Kalon crème de cassis, black raspberries, flowery incense, spice, and tobacco notes all define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It has another 2-3 decades of prime drinking ahead of it. This cuvée is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from four blocks in To-Kalon, aged 20 months in 82% new French oak. - Jeb Dunnuck

While this site is known for its incredible Cabernet Sauvignon, today, it also produces some of the finest Cabernet Franc in the world. The 2018 Cabernet Franc Lithology Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard offers a crazy bouquet of wildflowers, violets, tobacco, crème de cassis, and assorted darker berry fruits. Full-bodied, ultra-fine, and perfectly balanced, with thrilling tannins, it’s another “do not miss” wine. The blend is 87% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon that was fermented in a mix of tank and puncheons and aged 20 months in 75% new French oak. I’m probably underrating this by a point. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Cabernet Franc Lithology Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard checks in at 92% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon that, like the To Kalon Cabernet Franc, was fermented in a mix of tank and puncheons and spent 20 months in 68% new French oak. It has a slightly darker, more earthy style in its black currants, dark chocolate, leafy herbs, smoked earth, and truffle-like aromatics. These carry to a full-bodied red with perfect balance, beautiful tannins, and just everything in the right place. It's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard comes from a world-class site outside of St. Helena and is all Cabernet that spent 20 months in 80% new oak.

"Bulgheroni's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, brooding beauty. Espresso, mocha, black cherry, plum, chocolate, and spice run through the 2016. The addition of 9% Cabernet Franc from Oakville Ranch adds aromatic intensity and nuance to this big, richly textured Napa Valley Cabernet. The boldly savory style is quite a departure from the more overtly fruit-driven style of the 2015." - Antonio Galloni

From the talented Michel Rolland and Philippe Melka, this outstanding wine was made with grapes from an assortment of the most renowned sites in Napa Valley. Its black, inky hue is opaque, and its aromas, with hints of plum and Brie, are heady and deep. Concentrated notes of bright, ripe blueberry, boysenberry, and plum gently sink into the palate. Black olive and dried violets seasoned with black pepper come into play mid-length with a melting sensation reminiscent of blueberry cream. Tannins urge the fruit and savory flavors forward. - Meridith May
