Brendel Cooper's Reed Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2019 Cooper's Reed Cabernet Sauvignon includes fruit from young vines and high-vigor sites in St Helena, Rutherford and Calistoga. It's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% Napa Valley, not always the case for wines in this price range. It's minty, herbal and dusty, with cherries and tobacco joining in. Medium to full-bodied, it's bright, fresh and taut, with a crisp, slightly greenish edge to the long, racy finish. A lighter, more quaffable style of Cabernet Sauvignon, it will be interesting to see how it is accepted by the market.
Fresh and pure style, with an unencumbered feel to its mix of cherry purée, mulberry and violet notes. Silky, but persistent on the finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
