Dark Ruby in color, our finest 2013 wine offers boysenberry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla, hints of mocha and chocolate and a slightly briary, savory note with a subtle oak toast. On the palate is fresh dark berry fruit and mocha. Fine tannins on entry, well-structured mid-palate with slightly chewy, rich tannins. We recommend some cellaring and decanting through 2020, it should peak 2022-2028 and continue to age.
The 2013 vintage started with an early bud break in mid-March for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Even and warmer temperatures marked the first half of the growing season. Followed by a period of cooler weather that allowed for extended hang time, October brought warmer temps that pushed the Cabernet to peak ripeness and we harvested the hillside block on October 4th.
