Critical Acclaim

WS91 – Wine Spectator
Composed of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Double Eagle Red rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notions of ripe red and blackcurrants, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries plus hints of menthol, pencil lead and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling, crunchy black fruits, framed by grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and lifted.

WE91 – Wine Enthusiast
Made from 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot, this is a powerful, brooding and full-bodied wine, this vintage the first made with the help of Atelier Melka. Leather, cedar and cigar make it supremely earthy and savory, with notes of black currant and berry matched by toasted oak and grippy tannin.

JD91 – Jeb Dunnuck
Based on 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot, the 2018 Double Eagle Red Wine reveals a dense purple color as well as ripe, powerful notes of black and blue fruits, toasted spice, graphite, candied violets, and orange zest. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and nicely balanced, it has ripe tannins, plenty of freshness, and the class to evolve for 15-20 years.

Tasting Notes

An homage to a stellar vintage, our 2018 Double Eagle Red is a classic Bordeaux blend culled from premier valley-floor vineyards in Oakville and St Helena. It opens with intense aromatics of bramble berry and currant, nuanced by notes of vanilla and oak spice from 20 months in French oak barrels. The round, voluptuous palate echoes the nose with layers of saturated dark fruit, focused by a fine tannin tension that persists on the long, elegant finish.
