    Tasting Notes:
    Luxurious dark cherry, boysenberry, blackcurrant and black fig aromas, with scents of oak toast and dark chocolate, introduce layers of rich, deeply concentrated, yet elegant flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, fig, currant and fresh cherry. The wine’s vibrant acidity, supple, seamlessly integrated tannins and impeccable balance contribute to a round, plush mouthfeel, leading to a long, savory finish marrying rich boysenberry fruit, French oak spice and a hint of dark chocolate. Remarkably delicious young, this classic Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon will develop even greater allure with another 7-10 years’ bottle age.

    83% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Sizable, tightly woven tannin wraps itself around black fruit with moderate acidity in this thick, tangy wine, which has 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot within the blend. Given less than two years in French oak, 60% of it new, it's an approachable, enjoyable wine that will also age. Drink now through 2021. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 91 Points

    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful crème de cassis fruit, excellent structure on the palate’s backside and represents a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. Aged primarily in French oak, the wine is youthful and young, with the coiled, restrained character of many 2013s, but the concentration is impressive and the purity is there. Beautiful black and blue fruits are obvious, and the wine structured, delineated and vibrant. There is a reasonably good value as well. Give it another 6-12 months bottle age, and drink it over the following 12-15 years. - Robert Parker 90+ Points
