2013 is a benchmark vintage for California Cabernet – a year 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. The fruit here is robust and abundant, but it still takes time to open in the glass. Open one of these bottles this summer to host the barbecue of a lifetime or leave it in the cellar for another eleven and a half years and use it to ring in 2030.
