95pts James Suckling
Aromas of black and red currants, dried herbs, black licorice and figs. Medium-to full-bodied with velvety tannins. Juicy and fruity at the start, but lovely ground spice emerges through the long finish. Well structured and harmonious. 39% merlot, 32% petit sirah, 19% cabernet sauvignon and 10% malbec.

91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An unusual blend of 39% Merlot, 32% Petite Sirah, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec, SLW's 2019 The Investor features a rich array of fruit scents, ranging from cassis to raspberry and cherry. It's medium to full-bodied, framed by soft, silky, dusty tannins and finished off by hints of vanilla. It's a step up from the winery's basic Cabernet and Merlot, more accessible and nicely balanced, even if it lacks varietal signature. Best After 2022

Winermaker Notes

A true compliment of the winery’s ability to combine power with grace, the 2019 Investor is warm, rich, and inviting, with exuberant notes of dark blackberry, black cherry, blueberry cobbler, and dark plum, alongside spiced notes of cinnamon, clove, allspice and vanilla. Alluring notes of black pepper, graphite, and floral violet are interwoven with delicate savory notes of fresh thyme, lavender and wild sage. The plush mouthfeel is silky and inviting with round tannins that envelope the palate, leading to a long, mouthwatering finish with fresh acidity and vibrancy. Accompany alongside any dish to enliven any celebratory meal.
