In the glass this wine overflows with aromas of blackcurrant, blueberries and plums underlain by more subtle secondary aromas such as cigar box and mahogany.
On the palate this wine starts off soft, with black fruits and violets building in intensity as the flavors evolve eventually ending in a crescendo of complex layers and flavors including blueberries, graphite, rich earth and spice. This wine will age beautifully over the next 10 to 15 years.
In the 2013 vintage, we experienced moderate temperatures and dry conditions in all our vineyard locations. All wines from the vintage, both red and white, benefited from a long, cool growing season, and this was especially true for Cabernet Sauvignon.
