2019 Khanda Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Khanda is a seductive Cabernet Sauvignon blend with Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
The aromas are complex and fresh with plum, chocolate covered cherry, red currant, violet,
lavender, coffee grounds and a hint of tobacco. The approach is bright
and dominated by the cherry and plum notes as well as raspberry, mushroom and vanilla.
Deceptively soft tannins result in an elegant mid-palate providing the foundation for an extended finish.
This wine was crafted from the Rewa Estate in Coombsville, Napa Valley. The fruit was
harvested by block and fermented separately, pressed, transferred to French oak barrels,
and kept as individual lots for approximately ten months. The wine was then blended and
returned to barrels for an additional year of aging in French oak. The wine was bottled
without fining or filtration on July 15, 2021.
