Traditionally, a Postmark is used to indicate a specific time and location on a piece of mail. This particular Postmark comes to you from Napa Valley, a snapshot of a vintage. One of the many joys of opening a bottle of wine is being transported to a unique vintage and site. This is picture-perfect Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. From its deep crimson colour to its velvety texture and alluring layers of fresh blackberry, boysenberry and cassis, you can taste the warm Napa Valley sun in this luxurious Cabernet. On the palate, hints of violet, lavender and dark chocolate add to the delicious depth of this wine, with a pleasing touch of acidity bringing brightness and poise to a lush fruit-driven finish.
Made with both hillside and valley floor fruit, aged 12 months in French oak. Postmark is a great example of Napa Valley Cabernet from Duckhorn’s team of Napa experts.
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Pliant and supple, the 2018 offers lovely immediacy. Succulent red cherry, red plum, spice, lavender, cedar and tobacco all flesh out in this effortless, forward Cabernet.”

“As the debut vintage of this wine, this impresses in its easygoing nature of soft, smooth tannins and accents of tobacco, dried herb and earth. Sourced from multiple appellations, it finishes in bursts of blackberry and dark chocolate flavours.”
