We crafted our 2013 Sonoma Estates Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest vineyard sources in Sonoma County. The majority of the fruit came from Sonoma Valley and Knights Valley, two AVA’s that impart both an elegant balance and ripe flavor profile to the wine.
The 2013 Sonoma Estates Cabernet Sauvignon features a fruit forward nose of dark cherry, fleshy plum and black current preserve, with decadent undertones of dark chocolate and chai tea. Both fresh and ripe aromas layer the palate, which is complimented by a plush, velvety texture.
88% Cabernet Sauvignon
1% Cabernet Franc
Fermentation/Barrel Aging: Fermented in stainless steel. Aged 14 months in French and American oak (25% new)
Total Acidity: 0.57 g/100 ml
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Estates (Sonoma County) is an absolutely delicious wine that shows just how compelling Sonoma Cabernets can be. Rich, dark and powerful, the 2013 exudes notable depth in its dark stone fruit, savory herb, smoke, leather, spice and tobacco flavors. Drink this racy, intense Cabernet over the next decade or so. - Antonio Galloni 90 Points
