The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as quite closed following its bottling a few months ago. This feels a bit lighter than the 2018. Some of that may be attributable to the year, or perhaps a shift to one of the blocks on the property with Clone 337 Cabernet, which often yields wines with red/purplish fruit character and pronounced floral nuances. That’s not a bad thing though, as the 2019 is an especially refined, understated wine. I imagine it will come alive beautifully with a few years in bottle. My most recent tasting suggests that is already starting to happen. The 2019 is a total stunner.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2039
