Andrew Januik Stone Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Damn this is tasty! What it delivers in plush, round generosity is matched by its freshness and flowing drive.
Beautiful cassis meets ripe red cherry, liquid violets, pipe tobacco, hints of cedar and dark chocolate. It didn't hurt that there was a plate of grilled New Yorks on the table but this Cabernet doesn't require a hearty meal to make it sing—just a glass.
If Andrew Januik represents the second generation of Washington winemakers, we are in very good hands. -Marcus
2018 vintage notes
93+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Stone Cairn checks in as 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot that was brought up in 50% new French oak. This deep ruby/purple-hued beauty gives up a great bouquet of crème de cassis, spicy oak, chocolate, and flowers. Beautifully balanced and medium to full-bodied, with both richness and elegance, it ranks with the finest examples of this cuvée I've tasted. If it was from Napa, it would be three times the cost. Drink bottles over the coming 10-12 years, if not longer."
94 points Owen Bargreen (Decanter, Vinous): "The 2018 ‘Stone Cairn’ by Andrew Januik is quite possibly the finest wine I have tasted from this talented young winemaker. The wine is dense and chewy now at the three year mark. The nose has really great range from tar and pipe tobacco to blueberry compote, mocha and loganberry preserves. The wine shows incredible decadence and a seamless texture. Once on the mouth this effortlessly glides across the mid-palate. This is big but has a great sense of elegance, as this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon will cellar well for another decade or more. Drink 2021-2034."
