In the realm of sophisticated, quaffable Cabernet you’ll not find a better deal anywhere than Lot 872 2020 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon.
Produced by a Sonoma Valley winery directly south of Knight’s Valley, this wine is an absolute standout, not only holding its own, but outperforming Chalk Hill and Russian River offerings from the same winery sold at 4x the price!
Lot 872’s lengthy journey begins with a richly styled dark fruit nose of brambly blueberry and blackberry confit on the nose and palate. Next up, hints of crème de cassis perfectly underscore the soft, supple tannins. The journey then takes you to the beguiling aromatics of tonka bean, and toasted oak with just a soft kiss of earth to coat the palate with a mouthwatering lingering feeling. This Cabernet is a cool-weather beauty that is just pure enjoyment and comes directly from a $65/bottle program. Like chocolate, it will leave you wanting more. Good news, you can have more at only $18/bottle.
