Tether Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2019 Tether Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with abundant aromas of black currant liqueur, huckleberry compote and blueberry pie. The gorgeous dark fruit core is complemented by layers of volcanic rock, spring flowers, mocha, spice and well integrated French oak. The wine possesses a rich texture that coats the palate in velvety tannins, sweet ripe fruit and elegant toasty oak. This wine showcases dazzling finesse and leaves you with an enduring finish.
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.
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.
