Caterwaul Wines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
A dark, exotic Cabernet Sauvignon nearly splitting at the seams with fruit and spice notes. The wine exhibits a completely opaque dark purple hue in the glass with a violet halo. Layered aromas suggest black currant, pine bough, pencil shavings, and fresh leather. The dense, concentrated palate is marked by macerated blackberry, plum reduction, baking spices, loam, cocoa nib, and crushed river rock. This big, complex wine will show its true colors after being decanted or with a few years in the cellar.
A perennial value that readers should snatch up, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a spicy, red and black-fruited, tobacco and cedar-driven profile as well as full-bodied richness on the palate. It's fruit loaded anad has a round, elegant mouthfeel, supple tannins, and a great finish. It’s well worth seeking out and ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years. Best After 2021
