2019 Waterhorse Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the most playful vintage we have bottled, with a freshness and verve that is downright charming. I have found it the hardest vintage to keep my hands off prior to release. Coastal berry fruit makes it a pleasure to drink now, and yet its very youthfulness hints at serious aging potential. It is a wine that makes me wish I could go back in time and taste the classic cabernets of the 60’s & 70’s in their youth.
One of the coolest climate Cabernet vineyards in California, Waterhorse is planted on a rocky ridge deep in the Sonoma Coast. It is only 2 acres and lovingly hand farmed by (my personal hero) Jesus Velasquez. His tremendous work produces singular and spectacular vintages of Cabernet year after year.
