Jester Cabernet Sauvignon - 2019

Varietally expressive and delightfully appealing, the wine shows blackcurrant, dark cherry, toasted nut and subtle vanilla characters with a hint of dried herb complexity. It’s beautifully supple and succulent with excellent weight and intensity, finishing long and silky.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. March 2021

Piercing notes of blackcurrant, reminiscent of Ribena. Herbaceous riffs of hedgerow, spearmint and greengage provide lift. Lithe, dense sage-crusted tannins find effortless affinity with the oak cladding (70/30% French/American, all used) . But it is the extract and generous mouthfeel that prove winning. No wonder, as 20% of the fruit was dried in the appassimento fashion. This is an impressive cabernet: saline, maritime, full bodied and highly regional.
Ned Goodwin, Wine Companion. February 2021

Marked by scents of cassis and mulberries, the 2019 Jester Cabernet Sauvignon is a ripe, medium to full-bodied effort that’s silky enough to drink over the next 4–5 years. Offering plenty of flavor and a soft dusting of tannins on the finish, it’s a fine example of the Jester Cab.
Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate. February 2021
