The 2019 Dante Cabernet Sauvignon beguiles from the start with aromas of cherry, strawberries, and cranberries, framed with a base note of freshly roasted coffee. In the mouth the tannins are well-structured and layer well with the juicy fruit flavors of wild berries and cherry. A lovely caramel note persists throughout the lengthy finish. This generous Cabernet is medium plum colored and layered with cassis, cigar box, dark chocolate with coffee bean and an underlying matrix of cranberry. The palate is varietally correct with ripe and supple Cabernet tannins and herbaceous spice. As the mid-palate unfolds it reveals the rich and sappy nuance of French oak, balanced carefully over the dark fruit medley and finishing as ripe black cherry and raspberry coulis.
