Fresh Off The Truck: 2018 Yesterday Reserve Napa Cab [Wine Access $600 for $42?]

Friday, January 22, 2021

The Yesterday Reserve I wrote about last week arrived. This is a highly anticipated offering so let's get right into it.

2018 Yesterday Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley [now sold out in most regions, affiliate link]
$39/btl (if you buy 6)
$36/btl (if you buy 12)
Free Shipping on $120+

Decanted for two hours.
80% opaque in an appealing ruby hue that thins on the edges.

Serious and subdued aromatically with cedar notes dominant over supporting fruit.

The experience improves dramatically on the palate.
Lands with mouth-filling authority and dazzles with vibrant appeal.
Gives way to energetic silty tannins and a long satisfying finish.


94/100 WWP: Oustanding

Bottom Line

This is another strong Wine Access NDA wine. I rated the Yesterday Howell Mountain 95 points, but it's hard to say which is better. I think they're both terrific.

I'll do a head to head tasting soon.

I don't know how they decide which wines to label Yesterday vs some other label, but this solidifies for me that when they call something Yesterday it's worth paying attention to.

Next Steps

This one may be sold out, but there's always another deal right around the corner.
