The 2019 Fait-Main “Teeter Totter” Cabernet Sauvignon with its opaque ruby/purple-color exhibits tons of fruit on the nose: crème de cassis, blackcurrants and blackberries intermixed with notes of baking spices, lavender, graphite and licorice. It is big, bold and full-bodied, round and juicy loaded with black stone fruit, a touch of cigar spice and a hint of figs on the long, silky finish. This is a wine that could be drunk now or over the next decade. Limited production!
Winery Notes: “The Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon as it will easily compete with wine that costs 3-4 times its going rate. Made from mostly Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from throughout the valley, this beauty boasts a saturated purple color as well as a classic bouquet of crème de cassis, licorice, toasted spices, and tobacco. Deep, full-bodied, and powerful, it still has the class and purity of the 2019 vintage front and center. It’s a no-brainer to enjoy over the coming decade.
FMW 95 Points: “Another terrific value, the Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (85%). The Production is way down, but it’s an amazing wine with its bright, juicy blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with plenty of graphite and toasted spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and sweetly fruited, it has ripe tannins and is well worth seeking out.”
