The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Au Paradis emerges from one of the most privileged sites in Oakville’s high-rent Eastern Hills district. Neighbors include Dalla Valle, Phelps Backus and Weitz. Tasted in the context of the region, Au Paradis offers notable density, richness and aromatic nuance. Even so, today, the 2013 comes across as a bit light for the year, which suggests it may still be recovering from bottling, while the aromatic and flavor profile is a bit disjointed. It will be interesting to see how the 2013 develops with more time in bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2025
