"This wine delivers everything we are looking for from a great vintage. The color is an inky purple hue and the wine has aromas of black fruits, baking spices, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex, full of flavors of berry pie, mocha, cedar, black pepper and vanilla toast. The texture is creamy, round and full with well structured tannins that are approachable now or will cellar well for decades. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah, aged 18 months 25% new oak barrels." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
2013, like 2012, was a dream of a vintage for growers in Napa Valley. This 2013 is everything we think a model Napa Valley Cabernet should be, featuring soaring notes of ripe blackberry and licorice built on a sturdy, succulent frame. With just a touch of Merlot and Petite Sirah, this exuberant Cabernet finishes with firm, chewy tannins that hint at a long life ahead (if you can stand to hold off popping the cork)!
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Drinking window: 2019-2033." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
