Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2019 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon is energetic, lively, and bursting to show you everything it has to offer. This vintage expression of Cabernet Sauvignon fills your nose with black cherries, dark cocoa nib, and a hint of baked sweetness. These familiar aromas from the Oakville Estate are also found on the first sip, with a pop of ripe plum and savory cooking herbs that are reminiscent of the fresh outdoors on a trek through the Tahoe mountains. That combination of luscious fruit and fresh herbs is completed by the plush, velvety tannins on the finish. With every sip, the 2019 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon shows how a well-crafted companion wine should taste — balanced, structured, and unbelievably delicious.

Ratings and Reviews

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
This wine offers outstanding quality at a fair price, juicy and inviting in raspberry and dark cherry, with approachable structure and enduring grace. Herbal and earthy, it has length and breadth on the palate, with a velvety texture and undoubtable balance, finishing in a bite of dark chocolate. — Virginie Boone

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
Alluring, offering a mix of sage, olive, tobacco and scorched earth notes, with a wave of warmed cassis and plum sauce. A broad, slow-moving wine for fans of the stolid style. Best from 2023 through 2032. 122 cases made. - James Molesworth (8/22)
