From The Winery:
100% Estate Grown & Bottled
The 2019 Relevant is an inspiring introduction to Crown Point. It aptly mirrors the attributes of the 2019 vintage - dark fruit, balanced, smooth structure, trademark Mediterranean spice - finishing with length and tension. The after palate is tremendously pleasurable, bringing notes of violets and rhubarb.
Fermented in a mix of oak, concrete, and stainless fermenters, the wines were barreled down after fermentation in 33% new French oak and 67% once used. After 18 months in barrel, the wines were blended, unfined, and unfiltered. Marked by an elegant richness, you may enjoy this wine now or for another 20+ years.
97 POINTS - WINE ENTHUSIAST
A dense crème de cassis aroma shows a serious edge of loamy soil, bittersweet cocoa and roasted rib eye on the nose. The palate is wrapped in smooth yet structural tannins, offering charred black currant, black olive and more cocoa, with a sizzle of acidity persistent throughout.
95 POINTS - WINE ADVOCATE
The 2019 Relevant Cabernet Sauvignon matured for 20 months in new, once- and twice-filled French oak barrels. Deep ruby, it features pure aromas of cassis, grilled meats, warm chocolate, dried herbs, roasted peppers and hints of violet. The medium-bodied palate is powdery and fresh, striking a balance between ripe blackcurrant fruit, classy new oak spices and alluring herbal streaks. It’s a balanced, drinkable style of Cabernet that’s a pleasure to drink!
