Tierra Roja 2019 Cabernet Estate
2019 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Oakville, Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 98+ Points
Youthfully coiled yet ideally ripe and in chiseled focus, the aromas of this terrific Cabernet emerge as a gorgeously sweet-natured medley of sour dark cherry, red currant jam, red plum, boysenberry, cedar, clove, baking spice, sweet tobacco leaf and mineral scents. It proves even more appealing on the palate, where the forthcoming character of 2019 is truly evident. Palate-coating and already delicious the ultra-elegant flavors center on cherry, red currant, raspberry coulis, cassis and violet tied to cedar, vanilla, baking spice and tobacco leaf all combining to suppress Oakville’s notorious combination of tannin and minerality. If a wonderfull dinner wine already, it is certainly half a dozen years from it full expression.
