The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Boss Block 8 is based on 82% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 26 months in 85% new French oak. It's one big, ripe, sexy 2021 offering tons of cassis and blue fruits as well as background oak, graphite, and crushed stone nuances. With sweet tannins, a beautiful mid-palate, and the vintage's riper, broad, expansive profile, drink this beauty over the coming two decades. It checks in behind the insanely good 2021, but this is legit awesome juice.

My favorite of the The Vineyard House offerings is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 8, a wine that includes 10% Cabernet Franc. Gorgeous scents of cassis, bay leaf, black cherries and vanilla merge seamlessly on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is richly textured and supple, with a long, velvety finish. Impressively delicious.
