The 2020 Four Flags is another great example of the elegant power Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon can display and the consistent allure created when blending these four prestigious vineyards together. The wine slowly unwinds with aromas of black cherry, cassis, sandalwood and olive tapenade. The palate offers hints of fresh ground coffee, cacao nibs, and red currant, which are all supported by silky, yet generous tannins. Great concentration and balance of fruit and savory components suggest this wine will cellar for many years and benefit in its youth with a hefty decant. – N.B

Coming from four vineyards—Upchurch, Grand Ciel, Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval—the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags begins with an oaky nose that is precise, focused and fresh. Aromas of black and dark red fruit tones sway with a delightfully dusty mineral essence and soft red florals. Full-bodied, fresh, firm and juicy, the palate offers a fine mineral tension and succulent acidity, while a polished frame of fruit cascades across the mid-palate before ending with a succulent, food-friendly finish and lingering tannic edge. Just under 19,000 bottles were produced after the wine aged for 20 months in all French oak, 82% first fill. Bravo! – Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Beef Bourguignon — We recommend pairing Four Flags with Beef Short Ribs, Venison Cheeks, Lamb Shanks, Burgers, or Earthy Vegetables. Tannin levels are high in this Cabernet Sauvignon, a trait typical of Red Mountain wine, pairing particularly well with nutty cheeses and oily fats.
