The instant you put your nose to the 2019 Macauley Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon you know that you have something special here, a suspicion that this will be a vintage for the ages. It is. We have spent hours upon hours in blending sessions to fine-tune this wine and the work truly has paid off. This blend has its roots in a number of powerhouse blocks, including Stagecoach, Darms Lane, Star Vineyard, another famed Oakville Vineyard, and with its 5% touch of Malbec, it emerges beautifully full-bodied and yet elegant on the palate. Even after 22 months in 80% new French Oak, the tannins retain youth and rusticity, while the bouquet has plenty of upfront appeal. It’s drinking beautifully right now, but you could hold onto this prized bottle for another 20 years. You will not want to miss out on this extraordinary release.
