2018 Khanda Cabernet Sauvignon
In this inaugural vintage of Khanda Cabernet Sauvignon,
winemaker Celia Welch blends discrete lots of our extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon
with Cabernet Franc and Malbec, new varietals planted at Rewa Vineyards.
The resulting wine is unmistakenly Cabernet Sauvignon with high-toned red fruits
of Bing cherry, red plum, and red currant. It is nuanced by the Malbec’s
fresh violet and rose aromas, as well as the subtle character of dark chocolate and cedar.
This wine was crafted from the Rewa Estate in Coombsville, Napa Valley. The fruit was
harvested by block and fermented separately, pressed, transferred to French oak barrels,
and kept as individual lots for approximately ten months. The wine was then blended and
returned to barrels for an additional year of aging in French oak. The wine was bottled
without fining or filtration on July 17, 2020.
