The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a dark, purple-red color in the glass. It opens with inviting aromas of dark berries, cedar, oak and spice, followed by a graceful mingling of cherry, blackberry, currant and sweet oak flavors. On the palate, the plush mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, taking the perfect alignment of fruit, oak and tannins through to a flawless finish. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging.

Vineyard Notes
The grapes chosen for this wine came from four of our outstanding blocks of Cabernet—all of which are sustainably farmed and planted from unique French clones. For each vineyard, the planting and trellis system were customized for the vineyard site. The vines on one of the vineyards, situated on a hillside, are contoured to follow the natural curvature of a bordering creek. Another vineyard has a unique trellis system to help the grapes ripen more evenly. A custom-designed modification to the VSP (vertical shoot positioning) trellis system allows the fruit in this vineyard to bask in the morning sunlight but then shelters it from the afternoon sun.
