Trig Point Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Diamond Dust Vineyard, Alexander Valley, California

Trig Point is produced by Nick & Yolyn Goldschmidt; the wines they produce are all single vineyard, handcrafted, small production, artisan wines. The Diamond Dust Vineyard sits on a bench land site in the Alexander Valley facing southeast in a beautiful bowl, protecting the vineyard from the wind. The early morning fog and deep gravelly loam soils are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense purple and reds in color. The aromatics are opulent and very floral. Black fruits were a common theme. Black cherry and plum. The mouth follows with rich dark fruits of plum, blackberry and some licorice texture. Lush ripe tannins, full body and the nice creamy, velvet, tongue-wrapping flavor. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Alcohol: 14.5%; Diamond Dust Vineyard on benchland in Alexander Valley facing south/southwest; hand harvested, yield 3.5 tons/acre; 100% barrel fermented; aging: Taransaud and Boutes oak barrels, 25% new, 60% French, 20% American, 20% Hungarian for 18 months; bottled unfined.
