Tether Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Another gem from winemaker Anna Monticelli, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is based on 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Aged 21 months in 60% new French oak, it’s a medium to full-bodied, round, seamless effort with real class in its darker currant fruits as well as tobacco, violets, and toasted spice aromas and flavors. It will keep for a decade. Best after 2022.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, notes of stewed plums, warm cassis and cedar leap from the glass with underlying wafts of clove oil and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied with ripe, approachable tannins and a great core of crunchy fruit, it finishes with a peppery lift.
