The 2019 Sentinel Ridge is a brilliant Cabernet that instantly bursts open with profound aromatics of ripe blue and black fruit, which is joined together by graphite, chocolate, spices, loam, along with hints of dark roast coffee nuances. On the palate this is full-bodied with a gorgeous rich, velvety texture and outstanding depth. This shows notable power, yet remains well-balanced, as it delivers layers of ripe dark fruits, dark chocolate and spice flavors that continue to build on the palate, before heading into the long, voluptuous finish. This is already simply outstanding, yet it also possesses the potential to offer a multi-decade long drinking window.
