Winemaker Notes:

Force Majeure's estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful but elegant, full-bodied wine that is grown primarily along the southwest ridge of the winery's vineyard, in soils that are deep and loamy but contain many small rocks of fractured basalt, concreted ash and even some granite from Missoula flood erratics. The vines produce small berries with bountiful flavor, concentration and intensity, but also a good degree of finesse, excellent structure and layers of complexity that will continue to develop during extended bottle aging for those who want to cellar and age their wines.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain Estate is a stunner, and Cabernet lovers are advised to jump on this beauty. Lots of cassis, graphite, chalky minerality, and lead pencil notes soar from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with a dense, concentrated mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. It's a ripe, polished Cabernet that shows classic Red Mountain minerality and structure.

A stunning bottling from Red Mountain, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon shows incredible flavor density and tension from this cooler vintage. On the nose, it shows off exotic spices that mingle with tar, anise, crème de cassis and violets. The palate is plush and jam-packed full of dark fruits, tobacco leaf, huckleberry coulis and mocha; refined tannins hold everything in place. Astonishingly good in its youth, this has at least another 20 years ahead of it. Be sure to give it at least a two-hour decant if enjoying young. -- Owen Bargreen
