In its second debut, the 2019 X∙I Cabernet Sauvignon commands attention with bold and structured characteristics that entice all senses. The appearance is impenetrable and inky while the bouquet expresses aromas of dark plums and blackberries. Composed of the five Bordeaux varietals although primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, classic notes of black fruits, smoked herbs, leather, and earth are on full display. Well-structured with balanced tannins, this impeccably made wine will easily age for at least a decade or more.
“A true 5 varietal Estate Bordeaux Blend. Having the viticulture at your fingers to guide each of these plantings with just the right inputs and be blessed with a nearly perfect vintage like 2019 was a combination for success. I love the dark fruit and young tightly laced tannin feel. As young as these plantings are, I predict outstanding things in future vintages to come!”
