Intense and concentrated, showcasing the nuanced results of the Erikson’s exceptionally intuitive approach to viticulture and winemaking. Layers of velvet tannins capturing the plump cassis and blueberry fruit and setting it against deep slabs of tapenade, graphite, crayon, cloves, tea and black chocolate. Hard to argue with, compelling and just rather delicious – a clear sign that cooler-climate Coombsville is a place to look for in the intense 2020 vintage. 50% new oak. Natural yeasts, low intervention, no filtering or fining.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2040

The single-varietal 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is deep garnet-purple in color. It rockets from the glass with vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrants, kirsch, and wild blueberries giving way to hints of crushed rocks, bay leaves, and graphite. The full-bodied palate is rich and seductive, with loads of bright mineral and red berry sparks and a firm, grainy texture, finishing long and layered. This is nicely done!
