2019 "Festina Lente" Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L
Howell Mountain, LPB 95 / IWR 95 points
"Aged in 66% new oak, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Festina Lente is deep garnet-purple in color. Comes barreling out with notes of warm cassis, boysenberry preserves and chocolate box, plus suggestions of crushed rocks, wild sage and cedar chest. The full-bodied palate is completely coated with black berries and earthy sparks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and layered."
