" The classic 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon from this great estate is dense purple/plum color gives way to a gorgeous nose of blackcurrants, burning embers, new leather, graphite, and tobacco. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it's one heck of a mouthful of Cabernet that brings classic Washington State structure and grip, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish. It's going to require 4-6 years, if not upward of a decade to hit maturity, and should evolve for 30 years or more. It's brilliant juice."
