Review: 2020 Aperture Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

This “soil specific” from Aperture hails from Sonoma County and is composed of a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 1% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine presents a somewhat jammy construction that gives time to notes of almond and a mixed baking spice note before delving back into more traditional elements of currants, tart cherry, and a stringent clove component that gives the finish a particularly brooding, gently fireside quality. Silky tannins and some light sweetness endure on a lengthy, lush finish which ultimately coaxes out notes of vanilla, anise, and blueberry late in the game. Tart but approachable throughout, it’s a wine that could probably stand another few years in cellar.
