Maître de Chai - Cabernet Sauvignon Massa Vineyard Carmel Valley 2019
This is a suave Cabernet, at 13.3% alcohol. Pomegranate molasses, Lydecker plum and pasilla pepper on the nose. The tannins are shockingly fine for cool-fermented mountain Cabernet, bolstered by bright currant and nectarine pit on the palate.
This is mountain Cabernet with a mix of fine tannin and deep and dark herbs, not quite the Eucalyptus expected but dried chili pepper and spicy mustard greens with a sanguine quality. High in acidity, and while you can pull the cork now, this will last the ages.
