Girard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Robust bramble fruit and tart cherry aromas mingle with savory spices, and milk chocolate and develop into blue fruit and cigar box spices as they coat the palate. Layers of raspberry jam, dusty minerality and vanilla lead to a powerful finish.
Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot, 1% Malbec
|James Suckling: 94|
|An intense nose with lots of ripe black and blue fruit, vanilla, licorice and a touch of leafiness. Full-bodied and dry with firm tannins and delicious fruit. Creamy and succulent with a touch of minerality. Long chocolatey finish. Light austerity at the end that makes it balanced and fresh. Better in a year or two.|

|Tasting like a wine three times its retail price, this juicy, plush and fleshy red shows structure and elegance. Black plum, dark chocolate and satin-lined tannins pave the way to a powerful finish.|
