2019 Samuel Lindsay The Gandy Dancer Cabernet Sauvignon - Excellent - BTYH

bigger than your head logo 250"A very California style cabernet that gushes with jammy blackberry and blueberry scents and flavors and is drenched in graphite, lavender and licorice, cassis, cedar and smoke; the color is a dense ruby-magenta that shades to an ethereal rim; bright acidity powers through dusty, velvety tannins to a long slightly loamy and gritty finish; foremost are those ripe, juicy black fruit flavors. 14.8 percent alcohol. I’ll confess that this is not my favorite mode of cabernet; I prefer something more reticent, something calmer. Those who dote on the fashion, however, will find much to like here, so I rate it accordingly. Excellent. - Fredric KOEPPEL"
