This wine delivers everything we are looking for from a great vintage. The color is an inky purple hue and the wine has aromas of black fruits, baking spices, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex, full of flavors of berry pie, mocha, cedar, black pepper and vanilla toast. The texture is creamy, round and full with well structured tannins that are approachable now or will cellar well for decades. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah, aged 18 months 25% new oak barrels.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Rating: 95+

There's a distinct freshness to this wine. Stainless-steel fermented and aged, it's high in acidity with enough spirit to feel almost effervescent. Lightly textured tastes range from pineapple to papaya, a squeeze of Lemonheads candy on the long finish.
