2019 harvest was a monumental year for growth and yields, ending the season with indominable rains. It was a year to challenge the winemaking teams across Texas.

Alas, the Wilmeth family stays true, growing this fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon. Always a favorite, The Wilmeth Vineyard cab evokes images of West Texas soil and sunsets. . This particular vintage opens with a flint/gunpowder like nose, then opens to expose ripe fruits, stewed red fruit compote with a hint of green peppers, and boasts a mouthful of ripe cherries and blueberries, so juicy, they slip right off the palate, finishing with a pop of acidity and smooth tannins.

Aromatics: Green and black peppercorns, flint, brooding cherries, candied molasses

On the Palate: Uber-ripe blueberries and cherries, medium acidity and subtle tannins. 

Enjoy now, age 5-10 years

Decant a minimum 30 minutes

Serve 60-68ºF

This has to be one of my all-time favorites. I was always trying to figure out if it was aged in American or French oak and - surprise, it's both. If I only had 1 vintage and varietal from here on out, this would be it. Absolutely amazing to have with or without food. Thank you for producing this.
