Shibumi KnollEstate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018- Special Priced 3-Pack
I first learned of Shibumi Knoll after meeting their late founder, Don Ross, with friend and mentor, Leslie Rudd. Don had just released his Chardonnay that became a cult wine almost immediately after wine critics tasted it. His estate Cabernet Sauvignon I soon tasted after and thought it was outstanding. This 2018 comes from their 1-acre vineyard in St. Helena. Their neighbors are the famed grower vineyard, Panek Vineyard and Chuck McMinn’s Vineyard 29 Aida property. Thomas Rivers Brown has been their full-time winemaker since the 2009 vintage, which at the time, was before he began consulting for numerous properties. David Abreu planted and continues to farm their vineyard. Thomas explains, “Upon the first sip, you are hooked- a smooth, beautiful wine mature beyond its time. On the nose, there are hints of dark fruit and allspice with a warm, lingering luscious sensation on the palate. This elegant, beautiful ruby colored wine is destined to be an absolute favorite.” 134 cases were produced.
