2018 Old Master
2018 Old Master is as beautifully aromatic as Cabernet Franc can be in its finest expression. It has aromas of sage and cloves layered with blackberries and quince. Its flavors are elegant, dignified and generous, seemingly playing with your taste buds. The finish of fine, mature tannins is long and persistent. This is a delicious wine for now and into the 2030s.

"The 2018 Old Master is, in my view, the signature wine from Hudson, white or red. This blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot is fabulous. Deep and explosive, with striking depth, the 2018 is outrageously beautiful. Inky dark red fruit, wild flowers, spice, mint and rose petal all race out of the glass. Cabernet Franc is not exactly what comes to mind when one thinks about Carneros, but it can be fabulous, as it is here. The 2018 is powerful and savory, with tons of class and without the over the top richness of some Napa wines."
