Jax Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Calistoga|
This no nonsense Cabernet Sauvignon coats the palate with layers of dark cherry, cocoa nib, forest floor and soft hints of cedar. Full bodied and well proportioned, this wine carries great length and focus on the palate. Already elegant and well-structured at its release, this wine will continue to evolve in complexity.
Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, dried thyme and baking spices. It’s full-bodied with fine tannins and lively acidity. Creamy, with a flavorful, fresh finish. Drink or hold.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it delivers pronounced blackcurrant jelly, stewed plums and cedar scents with wafts of cloves and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with lively, crunchy black fruits, framed with approachable, grainy tannins and finishing savory.
The value-priced (by Napa standards) 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Jax Estate sports a deep purple hue to go with a pretty, perfumed bouquet of pure cassis, ripe cherries, minty herbs, and chocolate. I like its freshness, it's medium to full-bodied, has notable purity, and is just a charming, delicious Cabernet to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years or so. 1900 cases.
