The 2018 Passion offers up tons of inky dark fruit. The tannins are a bit angular at this stage, so I would cellar the 2018 for at least a year or two. Everything is dialed up here, meaning the fruit, but also the tannins. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out this Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. -- Antonio GalloniAppearance:
Deep purple in color.Aroma:
Thiw wine opens with aromas of blackberries, cassis, and anise, our 2018 Passion Red Wine is both sensual and evocative.Palate:
Red and black fruits dance with hints of dark chocolate and toasty notes that are emphasized with exotic spice. The complex tannins lead to a long, rich and intense finish. This bottle speaks for itself.Vintage Notes:
What Passion Signifies: Passion is a culmination; a gathering of styles, vineyards and emotions. This superlative blend is an emotional crescendo; a wine that unites the best of the Napa Valley terroirs to create a harmonious and exceptional blend that captures the essence of the JCB Collection.
