2020 Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Black figs, Bing cherries, and cedar waft out of the glass, beguiling the nose. Dollops of fresh raspberries, spiced plums, blackberries, and dried star anise pirouette along the palate with vigor and poise, guiding each sip through the dynamic and endless finish. Even in its youth, this wine embodies elegance and opulence effortlessly.
praise for 2020 oakville reserve cabernet sauvignon
“This densely packed wine is layered in gorgeous fruits from raspberries and dark plums to sweet cherries, all wrapped in velvety tannins for a smooth and creamy texture. The subtle oak spices are flooded by the potent fruitiness that lingers long on the finish. Best 2027–2035.”
“This is the winemaker’s selection of barrels from the red volcanic soils of Oakville’s Leopoldina and Fortuna Vineyards. A tremendous start with aromas of black cherry and dried fruits. On the palate there’s a generous disrobing of blackberry and black tea. Chalky tannins take a grip, soon modifying to a soothing suede texture.”
“The estate-grown 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve is a substantial step up from the regular Cab, both in price and quality. Black cherries and cassis are framed by subtle oak shadings, while an earthy undercurrent provides a substantial bass note. Medium to full-bodied, this shows elegance and depth, silky tannins and a lasting finish.”
