Drinking Window: 2019 - 2035
Reviewed by: Lisa Perotti-Brown
Tasting date: October 2019

The Zakin 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from just below Cakebread’s dancing Bear Vineyard and just above Dana Estate’s Lotus vineyard. Very deep purple-garnet colored, it gives up expressive notes of blackberries, black cherry compote, stewed plums and balsamic with hints of sautéed herbs, rose hip tea, and damp soil with a waft of raspberry leaves. Medium bodied, the the palate is very light on its feet with lively freshness and fine-grained, ripe tannins, finishing long and perfumed.
