This beautifully blended 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly balanced with excellent fruit concentration. On the nose, this wine offers fresh blueberries, blackberry pie, huckleberry jam, black cherry cola, baking spices, black olives, cedar, and a touch of graphite. The palate offers smooth and velvety tannins, blackberry coulis, dried black cherries, blueberry compote, dark chocolate, toasted walnuts, croissants, and a touch of vanillin with a big finish that lingers. This offering is enjoyable today but will also evolve with cellar aging through 2035.
Winemaker Notes
Upon hand harvesting in the early morning hours, our grapes were carefully destemmed and sent to tank for a whole-berry fermentation. The grapes were cold-soaked in tank at 45˚F for 4-7 days, allowing for increased color, aroma, and flavor extraction. After inoculation with a select yeast, the grape must (juice, skins, and seeds) fermented at 82˚F, which allowed for a hot extraction on the skins. For fermentation cap management, the juice was pumped over the skins two times per day, wetting the cap evenly for a nice healthy fermentation. After fermentation and pressing, the 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 50% new French oak and 50% neutral oak for 20 months before bottling. The blend is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. At bottling, this wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

92 Points James Suckling – “Notes of blackcurrants, baking spices and chocolate with leafy character. Full and chewy with soft tannins that frame the wine. Sensation of graphite-like minerality. Tight finish. Drink after 2023.”
