Black’s Station Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. Back in the late 1800’s, folks used to call it Black’s Station. Founded by J.J. Black, at its height Zamora boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today Zamora has fewer than 70 residents. Matchbook Wines (makers of Black Station) grow most of their grapes in Zamora, and this wine serves as an homage to the town’s storied past. 2018 was a warm vintage in California, and Black’s Station Cabernet Sauvignon reflects that; with deep aromas of leather and brown spice that lead to flavors of blackberry, mocha, pomegranate, and plush tannins.
