The Black Label Cabernet has Coombsville’s dark, structured aromatics as its cornerstone, blended into the rich and refined style that is Covert’s hallmark. The team harvests by hand in the cool early mornings and sends the grapes through two rounds of rigorous sorting—first as whole clusters, then again as de-stemmed individual berries. After cold maceration, the fruit is fermented by naturally occurring wild yeasts for three to four weeks. Once this initial fermentation is complete, we gently crush the grapes with a vertical press directly into barrels for a secondary malolactic fermentation. The wine then spends 18-26 months in barrel, as needed for each vintage. We rack at most twice per year, and bottle without fining or filtration. By minimizing human intervention with the wine, it is aimed to amplify the voice of the terroir.

The 2018 Sage Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a graceful and agile wine with wonderfully wild aromatics and energy. The nose opens with a brambly thicket of berries, delicate licorice root and spicy, smoky spice.

A juicy mouthful of purple and red fruits centers the core, with gentle touches of sweet fennel, tobacco and minerals offering nuance and depth. Well-integrated tannins blend seamlessly with the fruit core, and finish with a final whisper of berries and anise.
