Roy Estate Mr. Evans Proprietary Red 2018
The 2019 Roy Estate Mr. Evans is a rich expression of our single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that achieves great finesse. The wine opens with a lively bouquet of concentrated red berries and graphite. There is layered depth and resonance here, as these ripe fruit and mineral tones transform to evoke exotic spices like anise, mace and licorice. The perfect addition of our Merlot and Petit Verdot brings superlative balance to this Grand Cru, showcasing the uniqueness of the Roy Estate terroir. While the wine’s confident swagger is undeniable, the elegance that is the perennial signature of the Roy Estate site is also present. Fresh fennel, wildflowers and menthol energize the wine and invigorate the palate. This noteworthy complexity and arresting freshness become apparent the more time the 2019 Mr. Evans spends in the glass. Robust, finely wrought tannins frame out the wine’s commanding structure and underscore its lingering finish. A Grand Cru of true substance, it will cellar and evolve for at least 20 years.
