2019 XI Cabernet Sauvignon
11:11 & Destin Vineyards, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
Predominantly composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 X∙I is a mélange of the five Bordeaux varietals giving this youthful blend depth and complexity.
In its second debut, the 2019 X∙I Cabernet Sauvignon commands attention with bold and structured characteristics that entice all senses. The appearance is impenetrable and inky while the bouquet expresses aromas of dark plums and blackberries. Composed of the five Bordeaux varietals although primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, classic notes of black fruits, smoked herbs, leather, and earth are on full display. Well-structured with balanced tannins, this impeccably made wine will easily age for at least a decade or more.

Food Pairing Notes
This young and bold wine will pair well with a classic ribeye or Santa Maria tri-tip for the meat lovers. For something interesting try it with a truffle cacio e pepe or a cacao rubbed pork chop. To finish your meal a baked apple crisp drizzled with caramel is sure to excite your taste buds.
“A true 5 varietal Estate Bordeaux Blend. Having the viticulture at your fingers to guide each of these plantings with just the right inputs and be blessed with a nearly perfect vintage like 2019 was a combination for success. I love the dark fruit and young tightly laced tannin feel. As young as these plantings are, I predict outstanding things in future vintages to come!”
