This wine has quite an old vine pedigree, with fruit primarily sourced from the Champoux and Sagemoor Vineyards. It’s mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot. It is full bodied, with sturdy tannins and aromas and flavors of blueberries, black currants, seared steak and espresso.
Lastly, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines comes from a mix of sites and was brought up all in new French barrels. Its deep plum/purple color is followed by a ripe, meaty, iron-laced bouquet offering plenty of black fruit, leafy herbs, chocolate, and graphite. This concentrated, medium to full-bodied red has a great mid-palate, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It’s tight, closed, and mostly potential today, but this is a terrific wine that will benefit from 4-5 years in the cellar and evolve for two decades. Rating: 94+
