Cabernet Sauvignon, Nathan Coombs Estate

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate is every bit as impressive as it was last year. What a wine. Deep, sensual and layered, with phenomenal aromatic presence, the Nathan Coombs simply has it all." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

The unique volcanic soil composition of this site is exhibited in this cabernets mineral texture and intensely structured palate. Our latest release from the exceptional 2019 vintage presents a deep purple rim surrounding an opaque garnet core with an abundance of aromas emerging from black currant and dark cherry to crème de cassis and tobacco leaf. Both graceful and bold on the palate, the silky tannins are balanced by pulsing acidity that brings tension and focus throughout. Notes of boysenberry are interspersed with accents of sweet thyme against a backdrop of graphite, adding to the long finish and layers of complexity.


Growing Season

2019 was truly a remarkable year that may prove to be the standout vintage of the decade. The season began with steady winter precipitation and cool springtime temperatures helping keep moisture in our soils throughout much of the summer months. After a rare late season rainstorm in May, warm and dry conditions followed providing an optimal bloom and fruit set. The summer progressed with mild temperatures allowing grapes to slowly ripen and develop their phenolics gradually on the vine, a welcome sign for our team. After the record-breaking 2018 harvest, the crop came in much closer to historical averages. Harvest kicked off during its typical timeframe on September 6 and lasted seven weeks, with fruit possessing exceptional energy, precision, purity of flavors, and superb balance.
