Our 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a seamless wine that features boysenberry, lavender and cassis aromas followed by toasted coriander and tobacco leaf. A burst of blackberry, black currant and dried cherry flavors are framed by hints of molasses and dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Layers of rich, dark fruit dominate, while toasty oak notes highlight the periphery. Mouth-watering tannins give this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon depth and structure.
A carefully crafted blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, the addition of small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc enhance the complexity of this wine. The fruit was picked at the peak of ripeness, resulting in rich color and balanced flavors. While the Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc add color and structure, Merlot and Malbec add soft, dark fruit avors to round out this wine. The bold, tannic body of our Cabernet Sauvignon lends itself to a variety of food pairings. Enjoy with herb roasted chicken and grilled eggplant or hearty braised beef short ribs and polenta.

“This wine over-delivers in quality for the price. It’s made from mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with handfuls of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc blended in to good effect. The whole combines into layers of chocolate and graham cracker, dappled in vanilla and jam. Thick tannins suggest a swirl or two of the glass. The finish is all tobacco.”
