92

Napa Cabernet tamed by a touch of Malbec. Supple tannins surround the palate. Layers of juicy black currant, dark plum and hints of espresso, with well-integrated notes of baking spice. Effortlessly bold.

91 Wine Enthusiast

With 10% Malbec and 5% Petite Sirah, this is a dark, jammy and richly layered red, offering smoked meat, graphite and black olive. Lengthy, it is soft and supple on the palate.

Tobacco, spice box, lead pencil, and both red and black currant-like fruits emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer, a medium-bodied, supple, elegant 2019 that has sweet tannins, solid depth of fruit, and a great finish. Drink this total charmer over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer.

Product Description:

Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon re-imagines what a Napa Valley Cabernet can be. The well-known power of valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon is harnessed and softened by our mountain-grown Malbec. Supple tannins surround the palate, framing layers of juicy black currant, dark plum and hints of espresso, with well-integrated notes of baking spice from oak aging presenting an elegant finish.
