Macauley 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Macauley Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 98 Points
This is an impressively complex and elegant young Cabernet that is already an amiable and delicious drink. The gradually expansive aromas are a seductive medley of mulberry, dark plum, sour dark cherry, red apple skin, pomegranate, baking spice and clove. It is gently creamy and attractively juicy on the mid-palate, where flavors of sweet dark plum, black cherry, sour dark cherry and mulberry find a near-ideal harmony with others of sweet tobacco, clove, baking spice and Kalamata olive. The finish is super-long and already seductive. Expect at least three years of steady improvement. Blended with 15% Malbec, 600 cases produced.
