The Walls 2019 Bellamy Cabernet Sauvignon


Coming from the Rocks district of Walla Walla, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Bellamy is based on 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, all raised in 68% new French oak. It has a great nose of dark berry, almost blueberry-like fruits as well as ample tobacco leaf, damp earth, baking spices, and chocolaty oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, it has velvety tannins, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish. It needs 2-4 years to integrate its oak (it's undeniably delicious today) and will have 15-20 years of longevity, if not longer. - Jeb Dunnuck, 95 pts
