2019 Five Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Five Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon When you follow great winemaking families, you discover great winemakers, and nothing is more exciting for us than to see multiple generations passing the torch. Krisi Raymond, a 5th generation member of the legendary Beringer family (established in 1876), is making some of the most delicious, under the radar Napa Cabernet I have tasted in quite some time. She was stomping grapes with her family before she could even walk. This is hardcore, big, rich, full throttle, gorgeously supple Napa Cabernet and if you have been a supporter of our $50-70 Napa offers in the past (Tether, Sheshan, etc.) this is a must buy. The 2019 is one of the great vintages from Napa. Galloni of Vinous comments; “the 2019s I have tasted so far are fabulous. The wines feel like they have a little more energy, power and depth than the 2018s” and the 2018 vintage was a great vintage. 2019 received a huge 96pts by Parker’s Wine Advocate. Krisi Raymond has earned a spot on the hierarchy of Napa’s legendary female winemakers, including Helen Turley, Heidi Barrett, and Helen Keplinger. I highly recommend.
