2018 Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

It is hard to imagine with the Lithology range receiving 298 points out of 300 for the three single-vineyard wines, that there could possibly be a wine above them. But there is, and it is our Estate wine. Blended several times very intently by masters of their craft Philippe Melka and Michel Rolland, this is the ultimate expression of our house’s work. Positive, full-bodied, and quite powerful, there’s the expected crème de cassis and blackberry from St. Helena Cabernets, with mineral, herb, subtle tobacco and vanilla, plum skins, and pie crust, purple flowers, forest-conifer notes, and very fine tannic structure. It is a magnificent, and magnificently elegant expression of this house, and when asked recently, Monsieur Rolland stated plainly to me, “oh yes indeed – this is the best one, the best yet…”

99 POINTS - Jeb Dunnuck
"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." - 1/27/2021

97 POINTS - The Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays a deep purple-black color, needing a fair bit of swirling to unlock notes of cassis, wild blueberries, and stewed plums, followed by hints of sandalwood, cedar, Indian spices, and charcoal. The full-bodied palate is rich, opulent, and hedonic, featuring concentrated black fruit preserves flavors with a whole fireworks display of exotic spice sparks, framed by velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with fantastic length." - 7/30/21

97 POINTS - Vinous
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Alejandro Bulgheroni is sleek, polished, and flamboyant to the core. The top wine in this range, it offers a heady concoction of inky dark fruit, crushed raspberry, mocha, dried flowers, spice, and rose petal, all wrapped together in a stylish package that delivers the goods. The 2018 is superb." - Jan 2021
