A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Cabernet Franc, just under 5% of it aged in amphoras, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored. It rolls out of the glass with youthful notes of warm cassis, blackberry pie, wild blueberries, and vanilla pod, giving way to notes of chocolate box and violets. The full-bodied palate is rich, spicy, and generous with velvety tannins and just enough freshness, leading to a long and fragrant finish on this beautiful wine.
Including 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a hidden gem. While the Maya gets all the attention, the classic Cabernet Sauvignon from this team is insanely good, year-in, year-out. The 2019 sports a dense purple color as well as quintessential Cabernet notes of cassis, black raspberries, flowers, toasted spices, and tobacco leaf. The purity of fruit is incredible, it’s full-bodied, has silky tannins, and flawless balance. It has 30 years of prime drinking ahead of it.
