Wine Information

The 2018 Guest Cottage slips sensuously out of the glass with gorgeous black cherries, kirsch, wild blueberries, and blackcurrant notes plus suggestions of warm earth and underbrush. Full-bodied, and packed with ripe, expressive, exquisitely accented black and blue fruits, it has loads of earthy sparks and compelling fine-grained nature to the firm texture, finishing long and layered. This bright, energetic, incredibly nuanced beauty is built like a brick house and, while approachable in youth, is easily a 25+year wine. We, therefore, urge everyone to wait for at least 3 to 5 years before opening to allow for the myriad of subtle nuances to emerge and offer an experience that will wow you. 

PRESS:

95p Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Nov 2021): "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Guest Cottage is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it is a little closed and broody to start, opening out to notes of tar, new leather and damp soil over a core of warm blackcurrants, fresh blackberries and boysenberries. Full-bodied, densely packed and muscular, it has a solid foundation of grainy tannins and a long, mineral-tinged finish."
