2022 Wine Value of the Year
“Fresh, direct and focused, with red currant and cherry coulis notes that race through, dotted with savory, floral and tobacco accents. Judicious toast lets the fruit play out, and there's solid energy throughout. Drink now through 2030.” - James Molesworth, August, 2022
The 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a bouquet of dark red berry fruit, supported by briary cherry, and tea-leaf herbaceous notes. The palate follows through nicely with juicy and bright strawberry preserves, black raspberry, black cherry, and cola, supported by delicate hints of mint, mocha, and dark chocolate. The tannins are smooth and round, offering a plush texture and mouthfeel, with a classic balance and structure that complements the character of this wine. Well- integrated baking spice notes of vanilla bean, cinnamon, and ginger from the toasted oak barrels seamlessly complement the lively berry fruit aromas and flavors, leading to a long, savory finish with focused acidity. This crowd-pleasing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly drinkable now, upon release, and can age for many years to come.
