N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 93 | June 1, 2022 |

Aromas of porcini, bark, blackcurrant and blackberry. Full-bodied with powdery tannins. The palate is grounded by a solid core of black fruit, accented by dried herbs and flowers. Delicious. This will age well. Best after 2024.

The 2019 JCB #1 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Powerful and layered, the 2019 opens nicely with time in the glass. Super-ripe dark fruit, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and chocolate build as the 2019 fleshes out with a bit of time in the glass. Most of this fruit is from St. Helena, and that ripe character that oftens defines those wines really comes through here.
