Wine Description

In the heart of Napa Valley, Fess Parker Winery presents the exquisite Addendum Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2018, a testament to the artistry of winemaker Blair Fox. This appellation-designated bottling emerges from the harmonious fusion of four renowned vineyard sites: Clos du Val, Round Pound, Stagecoach, and Skellenger Lane, each celebrated for their meticulous viticulture and rich history of crafting exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Blair Fox, the Head Winemaker, skillfully brings forth the quintessence of these distinct terroirs.

In the glass, this wine showcases an enchanting deep ruby hue that beckons with promise. On the nose, it reveals a symphony of aromas, led by ripe raspberries, mulberries, and black currant pâte de fruit. These fruit notes harmonize gracefully with subtle undertones of singed applewood, dried anise, and hints of red tea, evoking memories of the chaparral.

The palate is a testament to its Napa Valley heritage, offering a rich, full-bodied experience. Firm yet well-integrated tannins structure the wine, delivering flavors of deep blackberries and dark plums that unfurl gracefully. While lightly oaked, it predominantly relies on the power of ripe fruit to make its statement.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Ripe and focused, with a core of raspberry, mulberry and black currant pâte de fruit notes that meld nicely with singed apple wood, dried anise and red tea nuances through the chaparral-tinged finish. Still a bit reserved in feel and progressing slowly -- hallmarks of the vintage. Best from 2024 through 2036.

Wine Enthusiast
This brawny wine offers a big structure of firm tannins and full body packed with deep blackberries and dark plums that fill it out well. It is lightly oaked, relying mostly on ripe fruit to power its expression.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley showed brilliantly, with lots of cassis, tobacco, and cedary spice aromatics as well as medium to full-bodied richness. Made from 100% Cabernet aged 26 months in new oak, it's balanced and has wonderful freshness, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's going to keep for 15-20 years.

Aromas of blackberry, plum and oolong. Full-bodied with fine, gripping tannins. Red and black fruit mix on the palate with good intensity. Chewy finish. Best from 2022.
