Teeter-Totter, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon MAGNUM Napa Valley, California 2019 (1.5L) (1.5L)
Per usual, Teeter-Totter is a hedonist’s Cabernet that oozes lushness, power, and sublime concentration. Polish your finest Bordeaux glasses and decant the wine for no less than one hour before serving around 60-65 degrees. A dense dark purple core with ruby hues reveals itself and, after a few swirls, viscous tears slowly leak down the side. The nose erupts with purple flowers, cassis, kirsch, licorice, black raspberry liqueur, vanilla bean, espresso, Damson plum, and various pie spices on a bed of cedar and crushed black rock. The palate is full-bodied and opulent with lush layers of black-blue fruits that seamlessly meld into a soft mineral core and a hint of damp herbs. Its ability to drink so well in its youth is simply incredible but please do hold back some of your stock for consumption around 2025 and 2030.
