Lewelling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, St Helena|
"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 20 months in oak, 70% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers up fragrant notions of minted cassis, blackberry compote and spice cake with suggestions of cardamom and chocolate box. The full-bodied palate is rich and plush, packed with spicy black fruits and finishing with great length. 950 cases were made." Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 points (2018 vintage) Drink 2022-34
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant and has classic varietal aromas and flavors of cassis and dark currants as well as tobacco, cedar pencil, espresso, and spring flowers. With medium to full body, a seamless, elegant mouthfeel, silky tannins, and impeccable balance, it's well worth seeking out and a multi-bottle purchase. I'd certainly be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar. It will have 15-20 years of longevity.
