The Protocol Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Lifted aromas of plum, cassis, spices, and cedar oak.
A tight tannin structure filled out by ripe dark fruits. Elegant yet generous, the wine continues to a long finish.
Slow roasted lamb roast with Moroccan spice.
2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average spring and summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board. The results have been punchy aromatic whites, fine natural acidity, spicy Shiraz, and more elegant Cabernets.
