2019 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

April 5th-April 12th


The 2019 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon has only been available to Madroña Wine Club Members. But with the accolades the wine just received, we thought we’d open it up to all of you who read the Shrub Report (you know, hit it while the iron’s hot).

It’s a great time to order and ship with the temperatures. (Click here to go Shopping for our Cab!) Or come up to the winery this week and throw together a case of wine…the Cab gets your Wine Club and case discounts too! Here are the details on the wine:

The 2019 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

This is one of those Cabernets that will retain its fresh and youthful qualities long into its own life (and I’m not talking tannins here). Beautiful opaque color gives a hint to the depth of this wine for starters. Slight briary notes sprinkled into earthy and cherry characters form the base of the aromas while a subtle black olive extract adds a bit of the Cab Sauv complexity. The palate on the entry is medium-bodied showcasing more of the dark cherry fruit on the onset. Wait a hint, and the linearity of the essence of this wine commands notice. No peaks, no valleys, the 2019 vintage is uniformly balanced throughout. Black fruit, herbal notes, a hint of forest floor…it’s all there in this wine. Yet the tannins are refined and approachable, something not always seen in young mountain Cabs. And then the finish lingers long with black currant, a pinch of anise, and just a sprig of rosemary (or is it thyme?). You make the call on that.
