Vineyard 29 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|California, Napa Valley, St Helena
Just about pure perfection, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon 29 Estate offers an incredibly pure, nuanced, and complex as well as full-bodied style that's just about impossible to resist. All Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate vineyard outside of St. Helena, aged 20 months in 85% new French oak, it offers ample cassis and darker currant-like fruits as well as violets, graphite, and freshly sharpened pencils. As seamless as they come, with beautiful tannins, it already offers pleasure today, yet I see no reason it won't cruise for 20-25 years or more in cold cellars. There are 520 cases produced.
Gorgeous, ultraripe fruit flavors meld beautifully with subtle oak spices and dark chocolate in this full-bodied and gently tannic wine. The ripeness and almost sweetness of black currant, black cherry and blueberry soaks through the fine-grained tannins for a very smooth texture. Best through at least 2030.
