Band of Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Napa Valley, California

Band of Vintners is the outcome of seven wine industry friends who regularly get together to taste wine and talk shop. The collective ‘insider’ knowledge of where the best fruit can be sourced, where the deals can be found, and where favors can be called in when needed, was contagious. “The outcome, is a wine we believe makes a strong case for one of the best QPRs in the Napa Valley, and something we?re proud to share with our friends, family, and neighbors.” The 2019 Band of Vintners – In the glass, a spice box awakens the olfactory senses followed by sandalwood, lightly toasted oak barrels, a slice of warm brioche, and violets. The acidity and tannins work harmoniously together to deliver a clean and smooth texture on the palate with notes of blueberry and anise, as well as an earthiness reminiscent of an old world profile. Varietal Blend: 76% Cabernet, 19% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Aging: 15 months in French Oak.
