Apex pours a dark purple-black into the glass. Licorice, plumbs, wet stones and blackberries lead the way, with smoked meat and wild blueberries framed by medium-firm tannins.

I Another interesting blend, the 2018 Apex is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Sirah, and the rest Petite Verdot. I like its purity of fruit and it has a deep purple color, lots of cassis and blueberry fruits, notes of chocolate and graphite, building yet ripe tannins, a notable spine of acidity, and a great finish. One of the standouts in the lineup, this beautifully put-together red will evolve for 15 years.

The 2018 Apex is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Petit Verdot. The nose offers sweet spice-laced red and black cherries with accents of loam, dried flowers and bay leaves. The palate is full-bodied and super dense with loads of ripe fruits and new-oak character. 1,000 cases were made.

Ripe and fleshy, with succulent crushed plum and boysenberry fruit flavors framed by anise and gently smoky toast notes, with a flash of savory. Those nuances are nice, but this is primarily fruit and will certainly have a lot of fans for its style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022. 1,000 cases made.
