2019 SILVER GHOST CABERNET SAUVIGNON

92 PTS

“This red is ripe and spicy on the nose with notes of blueberries and cassis, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Full-bodied and rich with ripe, mellow fruit. The round tannins turn firm at the end. Savory aftertaste. Better after 2023″

“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with soaring floral and savory overtones. Inky, deep and flavorful, this dense yet mid-weight Cabernet delivers the goods. I would prefer to drink it on the young side, while the inky, jammy fruit remains vibrant.”

“This red shows leafy character with notes of blackcurrant, mint, dried herbs and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with round tannins, bright acidity and a juicy mouth-feel. Fruity finish. Drink or hold.”

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is ample, generous and inviting. Inky dark fruit, cloves, lavender, licorice, menthol and spice give the 2016 lovely shades of darkness that complement its mid-weight structure nicely. This elegant, gracious Cabernet has plenty to offer. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so.”
