"Deep and saturated purple/black in color, the 2013 Collector is cloaked in a savory earthiness. Notes of dried herbs and licorice meld with hints of buttered toast and blackberry jam. Ripe, grippy tannins are tamed by the rich, sweet cherry and plum compote flavors. Broad and expansive on the finish, we find this wine to be approachable now, and suspect it will not be sitting on a shelf collecting dust for long!" —winemaker

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Petite Sirah, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon the Collector, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Petite Sirah and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, reminds me of a big, rich Petite Sirah. That explains the 30% of that variety, but it seems to dominate the blend. Beautiful blueberry and black raspberry fruit, extremely extracted and rich, but not rustic by any means, this is a big, dense, pedal-to-the-metal, balls-to-the-wall black/purple red wine to drink over the next 20-25 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
