2013 ALEXANDER VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
1100 CASES PRODUCED
18 MONTHS IN 30% NEW FRENCH OAK
100% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended from all three of our estate vineyards. 2013 is a benchmark vintage for California Cabernet – the heart of the drought and a time when historically dry weather produced historically great wine. The 2013 Estate Cabernet is dark purple in color and full of dark aromas: violets and chocolate and plums. Still, for all that fruit, this wine takes time to open in the glass. It’s delicious now, but it’s gritty. Give it another decade in the cellar to be at is best.
