Tasting Notes:

99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Another wine that will be a candidate for perfection in 7-8 years, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a mix of sites (Dr. Crane, Las Piedras, Vine Hill Ranch, Weitz, and Oakville Ranch) and spends 22 months in new barrels. Reminding me of the 2016, it has remarkable purity in its cassis and darker fruits as well as some obvious minerality, full-bodied richness, perfect balance, and building, subtle notes of violets, graphite, and chocolate. A brilliant wine, hide bottles for 4-6 years and enjoy over the following two decades or more.  (3/2022)

Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon opens somewhat reluctantly with cedar and baking spice scents, eventually giving way to a tantalizing core of Black Forest cake, blackcurrant cordial and candied violets with a waft of black raspberries. The tightly wound, medium to full-bodied palate is taut with ripe black fruits and a fine-grained textured, delivering loads of perfumed layers on the long finish. Stunning. (LPB)  (10/2021)

Winemaker Sam Kaplan sources from a range of stellar sites, many of them Beckstoffer, but also Vine Hill and Oakville Ranch. Together, they combine into a force of nature that is crisp and structured in red and black currant, coffee bean and toasted oak flavors that provide warmth, length and complexity. This powerful, structured and ultimately graceful wine will do well in the cellar. *Cellar Selection* (VB)  (3/2022)
