Based on this success, YOSHIKI is proud to announce the launch the Third vintage of the Oakville series, Y by YOSHIKI Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2018.
The color is beautiful and vibrant with deep blue and purple hues. The aromatics open with classic elegant cassis, muddled huckleberries, cacao, a subtle woody aspect with vanilla and warm toffee that comes from the new French oak barrels. The greeting of the wine is exceptionally balanced with a true beginning middle and lengthy finish. The pallet is full, smartly mirroring the aromatics with vine ripe loganberries, currants and huckleberry. The textures are wonderfully full with a superbly smooth texture.
