2018 Cabernet is splendid

In the June 2022 issue of Restaurant Wine, Ronn Wiegand tastes the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon:

Five stars:  Splendid vintage of Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon and the finest I have tasted. It is very aromatic, full bodied, and vibrant on the palate, with intense, complex flavors (blackberry, cranberry, green leaf, tobacco, black currant, pepper), balanced, and very long on the finish. Has medium tannins; warrants several more years of aging. Outstanding value. [2025-2035]

No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
