Addax 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa
2019 Addax Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95+ Points
By any standard this wine is a brilliant representative of the great 2019 Napa vintage and it proves powerfully aromatic. In the nose, scents of blackberry, cassis, dark cherry compote, violet, cedar, clove, toffee, licorice root, dark pipe tobacco and baking spice rise above a background of dark earth. It proves as intense as hoped in the mouth, where an iron backbone supports impressively generous fruit that comes with a surprisingly supple mouth-feel. This combination brings early appeal to a wine destined to be long-lived. The lasting flavor memory is of a rush of blueberry, Amarena cherry and sweet-savory spice. It is likely five years or more from its peak. 682 cases made.
