Description

93 points Wine Advocate
"The 2020 Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is juicy and bright on the nose. Despite its glossy exterior, the wine maintains a freshly turned earth/bramble vibe on the nose, which directly places it as varietally true. A honing beacon, if you will. The moderate to warm 2020 vintage is responsible for the density of fruit flavor in the mouth. Very good. The drinking window is conservative, but it takes into consideration primary fruit, which I personally prefer, to some extent, in most wines. This is characterized by cassis, blueberry, salted licorice, summer raspberry and even a hint of star anise through the finish.."

93 points James Suckling
"Piercing aromas of cassis, mulberry leaf, pencil shavings, dried sage and bay leaf, draped across the broad tannic scape. Yet another wine, mid-weighted and classy, of the second tier at this address."

Vinous Reverie Notes
After individual berry sorting and cold soaking, fermentation took place in closed and open fermenters at temperatures between 26C to 30C with extraction by pumping over each individual lot up to three times daily. After malolactic fermentation entirely in barrels and nine months of barrel maturation, separate parcels were blended for further maturation in French Bordelaise coopered barriques with seasonal rackings; a third each of new, one year old and two year old. This wine spent twenty months in total in oak. Tasting NotesBright, lively and fragrant nose with blackcurrants and dark cherries, combining with higher notes of clove, cummin, black cardamon and star anise. Beneath subtle notes of coffee and cocoa lie in the background. Fine and delicately structured palate featuring boysenberries, blackcurrants and plums. Volume and density through the mid-palate is balanced with a bright mineral acid line, finishing with seamless tannins.
