Albion 2019 Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon
Our new Albion 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is young and ready to enjoy now, but it is also built for longevity and ageing.
The nose provides enjoyable fruit forward characters, like blueberry, plum and cranberry. Cabernet Sauvignon is a master among all varietals when it comes to ageing gracefully. Currently, the finish has notes of pepper, tobacco and a hint of toasted oak. As the wine matures, notes of mocha, leather, coconut and vanilla will appear. The mouth starts with powerful tannins and the structure is tannic and complex. A second wave of tannins coats the mouth and extends all the way to the finish. This strength is reinforced by a good amount of alcohol, above 14%.
This abundance of lush tannins will pair well with grilled steak, roast beef, meatloaf or game meat. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Prime Rib au Poivre.
