2019 TVH Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
H.W. Crabb's Hermosa Valley
The 2019 TVH Cabernet is very precise, with a focused nose, great balance, and elegance. Bright notes of lavender, cocoa, dried roses and crushed rock lead to a dense, deeply textured, mouth-filling and gorgeous finish. The wine shows great energy and focus.

HARVEST - 2019 “The heavy rainfall in February, March and May (over4”) really helped bring harvest in line with more
normal dates. Despite a fairly warm summer with several heat events, the grapes picked in September were harvested with great integrity and wonderful flavors. Then, low humidity and windy conditions events happened in October pushing the grapes towards higher Brix with ripe, concentrated flavors. Overall, the wines have developed wonderful flavors, dark colors with very smooth, approachable tannins.”
