Pretty and aromatic with dried-rose, spearmint and currant aromas and flavors. Medium body, soft and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Firm, with concentrated, savory details of loam and toasted herbs adding terrific bass notes to the dense and muscular body of cassis, wild blackberry and plum flavors. Black tea, pepper and spice details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2035. 4,300 cases imported.

The 2018 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as slightly herbal and minty but with plenty of underlying black cherry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with a nice grainy texture on the palate and a gently dusty finish. It should drink well for 5-7 years, perhaps longer.
