RATINGS

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Dec. 2020) 96 points
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Seavey Vineyard is incredibly polished and sophisticated in 2018. The Seavey Cabernet usually needs time in bottle, and yet the 2018 is so incredibly appealing today. Although not quite as hefty as it can be, the Cabernet is beautifully persistent, suave and elegant right out of the bottle. Hints of cinnamon, dried flowers, tobacco and leather grace the mid-weight finish.”

Jeb Dunnuck (Jan. 2021) 95 points
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a step up in price and has beautiful and lively notes of red and blue fruits, spring flowers, and violets. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and elegant, it shows the more pretty, lively style of the vintage and is going to keep for 20 years or more.”

VINEYARD NOTES

Seavey’s 28th vintage of single-vineyard estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from grapes grown on steep hillside blocks which we have now been farming for over 40 years. The 2018 growing season was marked by ideal weather. It started off warm, but July and August were mild, resulting in a long growing season with lots of hang-time allowing the grapes to progress to perfect ripeness. 

PRODUCTION NOTES

Seavey separately harvests, vinifies and ages each vineyard block of our grapes. Our winemaking follows classic Bordeaux methods with whole-berry fermentation. In the cool of the early morning harvest, grapes from our 2018 harvest were promptly de-stemmed and the uncrushed berries were gently transferred into fermentation tanks. In order to carefully manage the tannins and resulting wine texture, the grapes were neither crushed nor run through a pump. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels (60% new) for 20 months before bottling in June 2020.
