The 2018 vintage of My Favorite Neighbor is a crowd pleaser. This Cabernet shows elegant aromas of cassis, black raspberries, cinnamon spice and nutmeg. The palate opens softly with luscious, dark fruit notes, seamlessly coasting to a lengthy finish of blackberry compote and espresso. Enjoy this Cabernet with backyard BBQ and grilled vegetables, but most importantly enjoy with friends!

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (this was reviewed as the "My Favorite Neighbor" in last year's report) is similarly deep purple/ruby-hued and has slightly more red fruits with lots of black raspberry, cassis, toasted spice, unsmoked tobacco, and incense aromas and flavors. It almost has a Margaux-like perfume and is medium to full-bodied, seamless, and wonderfully balanced on the palate. Some chalky minerality comes through with time in the glass, and it has plenty of tannins and a great finish. It's not an over-the-top blockbuster and impresses just as much for its elegance as its richness.

Dark, bright-rimmed purple. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe black/blue fruits, sandalwood and potpourri take on a smoky mineral nuance and a spicy top-note with air. Palate-staining blackberry, cassis, cherry-vanilla, spice-cake and mocha flavors are joined by suggestions of candied rose and cola on the back half. Finishes on an alluringly sweet dark berry preserve note, with well-knit, gently gripping tannins and sharp definition.
