Girard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
The year started out with ample rainfall which kept the soils moist and cool into spring. Summer was marked by warm, even daytime temperatures with few extreme heat spikes. The opportune weather conditions continued into late summer and fall. The harvest was of average volume, if not slightly below average, and the fruit quality was exceptional; allowing us to craft wines with texture, structure, and finesse.
Our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley hails from select vineyards across the Napa Valley, including sites in St. Helena, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Yountville, and Mt. Veeder. Girard has over four decades of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon experience and every vintage is an opportunity to explore Napa’s expression of this noble grape.
Robust bramble fruit and tart cherry aromas mingle with savory spices, and milk chocolate and develop into blue fruit and cigar box spices as they coat the palate. Layers of raspberry jam, dusty minerality and vanilla lead to a powerful finish.
