2018 Eponymous Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Wine from Napa Valley, United States
Eponymous Cabernet Sauvignon shimmers with a stunning deep-purple inky color and exudes wonderful intensity and complex notes as soon as the cork is pulled. Aromas include ripe plums, blackberries, cassis, hints of violets, toasted rosemary, and dark chocolate. The well- integrated fruit carries over to the palate, with a balanced structure and ample but supple tannins that lead to a long and polished finish.

Following the sale of his family’s renowned winery in 1994, Robert Pepi no longer could use his name on a wine label. Therefore, the first wine he has made for himself since the sale reflects explains the predicament and reminds us that “wine should be fun”. Eponymous is "one for whom or which something is or is believed to be named". Bob Pepi has given it his own playful definition, “a play on words by one who is unable to use his family name on his own bottle of wine”.
