The 2019 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring shade of deep purple-red, concentrated to the edge of the glass. A spectrum of aromas bound from the glass: blackberry, red currant, coffee, dusty cocoa, and white pepper. On the palate, flavors are beautifully held in balance by the fine, chalky tannin, its initial grip slowly melting to a long, silky finish. Interwoven notes of sour cherry, red raspberry, and chocolate invite another sip.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a tasty, easygoing Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. Bright red/purplish berry fruit, spice and lifted floral notes lend freshnss to this attractive, vibrant, mid-weight Cabernet. The 2019 is very nicely done, and is also one of the most approachable wines of the year, even though there is plenty of grip.
