In the glass, the Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a medium ruby-purple hue, a visual symphony suggesting vibrancy and youthful allure.

    Paul Lato’s 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Cavatina is a lovely Cabernet from Oak Knoll, matured for 19 months in 40% new French oak.

  2. JD

    Coming from Oak Knoll and brought up in 50% new oak, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley sports a deep purple/ruby, almost opaque purple color to go with lots of classic cassis, green tobacco, graphite, and cedar-laced aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and classically structured, with plenty of textbook Cabernet herbal character as well as beautiful California fruit, it should have 15+ years of longevity.
