Winemaker's Tasting Notes: The 2019 Coeur de Vigne is a Rutherford based Cabernet Sauvignon. The profound savory, dried herb, minerality holds center stage but evolves into a mouth full of dark chocolate and dried cherries. The structure of the tannins is evident but has been woven into the fabric of the wine giving it stability and resolve. These “cocoa powder” tannins melt away revealing a luxurious, long core that evolves over time, slowly releasing subtle nuances of perfume and baking spice that linger. A wine to be enjoyed now or over the next 10 years.
"Blended with 8% Petit Verdot and 2% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this hearty red is brimming in thick tannin, considerable oak and expansively youthful layers of vanilla,
cassis and plum. Impressive in its grasp of both variety and appellation, it is worth
cellaring; enjoy best from 2029–2034."- Wine Enthusiast.
"Aromas of mocha chocolate, blackberries and dark spices, followed by a chewy, full-bodied palate with juicy yet tart berries on the center-palate. Tight, rich and extracted. Try in 2024."- James Suckling.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
