Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A seductive style, with a creamy, polished feel to the mix of plum pâte de fruit, cassis and raspberry puree flavors, which have a subtle sheen of singed vanilla toast and light savory flecks through the finish. Drink now through 2032. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
This is a well-made red, blended with 13% Merlot as well as small percentages of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Thick and concentrated, it develops in the glass to show a nice refinement of woody oak, dried herb, cedar and black cherry, offering great value and wide appeal.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next few years. Crushed red berry fruit, sweet spice and rose petal are nicely pushed forward in this succulent, mid-weight Cabernet. Silky tannins wrap it all together. This racy, overt Cabernet has a ton to offer.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is based on 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. It's an outstanding wine, offering old school, complex notes of dried herbs, leather, spice box, and both red and black fruits in a charming, medium-bodied, balanced, satisfying style. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years or more.
