Sipping Fine Wine

From 30-acre Cab-exclusive Oakville Sullenger vineyard, located behind the winery, dark Ruby, a rich and dense complex Cab loaded with berry, currant, herb and cedar aromas. On the palate blackberry, plum and sweet cherry flavors with notes of pepper, smoke and sweet herbs. Approachable silky tannins, long ending with a fine sweet smoky cedar and earthy character. Very nice has room to age for a decade or so. Pair this with a USDA Prime!!

Ina vertical with the 2018, this was a really nice wine but paled in comparison to the 2018. This has a silkier mouth feel and dense dark red and brambly fruit that is more compacted than balanced. Delicious it is own right and with food.

It’s a very good wine, just not as good as it’s raved to be

Still young but high quality in all the right ways. Looking forward to opening the cellar one in 15 years.
