"This "crazy value" Napa Cab was sourced from a couple of top "Cult" wineries in the Valley (SHHH...their wines sell for between 75-150/bot!). Deep, rich and plush with classic Napa Cab fruit, it drinks like a wine costing 2-3 times as much! The 2018 Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon is a combination of top valley floor and hillside sites, its a blend of 98 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Cabernet Franc aged in French oak (20 new) for about 22 months. A wine that displays the outright richness and power of the vintage. Deep, intense, plum, dark cherry and spice are prevelant right away on the nose and palate. But the signature of the vintage is then on full display with minerality, balancing structure and a vibrant, fresh core that lifts the fruit and carries the wine. A classic Napa Cab that will drink well for many years."~Distributor Notes

The first Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon (2003) was discovered by Doug Polaner on a trip to California. The wine was sourced from one of Napa Valley's long time "cult" producers. Doug found himself in Napa at the right time, and was able to taste and buy a small lot of this top, top quality wine. Following the blow-out success of the first effort, Doug has continued to put together a stellar follow-up throughout the years. This is very impressive juice that continues to offer tremendous value for Napa Cab!
