Tate Wines, Jack's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Howell Mountain, CA)
Producer Notes: The 2019 Howell Mountain is the most concentrated we have produced. The color is opaque dark purple, even the rim. Cassis concentrate and black raspberry fruit jump from the glass. A cocoa nib, coffee, eucalyptus mix starts to emerge and gets stronger as one swirls the glass. The mid palate is very rich and lush, with more black fruit being met by the new oak flavors of vanilla and cigar box. The tannins are some of the firmest from this vineyard so far, and although big and chalky they are met by beautifully balancing mountain acidity. This wonderful micro production wine will reward anyone with the patience to allow the tannins to mellow and bottle bouquet to develop over the next 15-16 years (2036-2037).
