2017 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: $17.00
Opaque, deep, dark and dense. Ya, this Cabernet Sauvignon has astounding depth in color and flavor. Blackberry, black plum, cigar box. Silky smooth and continuing long with pencil lead and wet earth. With a finish that says WTF. Okay... Look that one up. Tremendous.

90-93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (barrel score v2016)
“The deep, inky-colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that will see 12 months in French oak. It offers terrific notes of cassis, blueberries, violets and wood smoke, medium to full body, ripe tannin and a classy finish. It way over-delivers for the price. It’s worth pointing out that this cuvee comes mostly from vineyards planted, and farmed, by Charles Smith and Brennan Leighton; this undoubtedly contributes to the incredibly high quality.”

92 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (v2015)
“One of the best values I’ve tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years.”
