2021 Cabernet Sauvignon

Blackberry, currant and plum lead to seductive flavors of cedar box and summer savory. The tannins are mouthfilling and luxurious in the way that only mountain fruit can achieve. The balance is precise, offering enough tension to intrigue the senses and welcoming you to another sip. The acid that so elegantly frames the richness of this wine will allow it to age gracefully and completely. Drink early and often but be sure to lay down enough to appreciate its progression for the next 10 – 25 years.

    Deep, opaque ruby in the glass, this powerfully structured Cabernet displays aromas of baked earth, black plum and dry cocoa on the nose. The palate is plush and richly tannic, with flavors of dried cranberry, dusty black cherry, pencil shavings and caramel. This should round into form nicely with a few years in the cellar. — Tom Capo

    The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon saw approximately 50% new French oak, but it comes across as substantially less voluptuous than either the Franc or the Merlot. Cassis and redcurrants marry easily on the nose of this medium to full-bodied wine, which finishes crisp and dusty. With its linear structure, pair it with rare beef or lamb if serving the wine young.

    Pretty cassis, red currants, tobacco, and damp earth notes define the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, a classic, medium-bodied, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from this team. It has fine tannins, a good sense of acidity, and outstanding length.
