2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon / Petit Verdot
92 points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Malibu Coast AVA, is a focused expression of the varietal’s bold flavors and structure, balanced with approachability and grace. Loaded with fruit, silky tannins, and beautiful aromatics, this bottling is pure elegance, and a wonderful representation of the Santa Monica Mountains’ unique terroir.
Chocolate covered berries and espresso open the festivities on the nose that is loaded with dark fruits, blackberry and bramble. A supple core of red cherry and cola greet the palate with sleek, fine grained tannins. Boysenberry and spice dance on the persistent finish, that lingers into an earthy conclusion.
The 2019 vintage consists of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon from Triunfo Canyon Vineyard in the rugged Santa Monica Mountains, blended with 10% Petit Verdot.
