Calculated Risk Barrel Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Napa Valley, California

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish/ purple rim.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate.

Showing blackberries, blueberries, black plums, cooked cherries, cedar, earth, vanilla, spices, espresso, bitter herbs, peppercorn, tobacco and dark chocolates.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley. Rich and extracted. Powerful and flavorful.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity already.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good structure, and could become a 94+ point wine. Will be nice to revisit it in 5 years.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.
