Robert Parker 93
Deep ruby, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum, blended with 9% Cabernet Franc, opens with aromas of roast lamb, cast iron pan, mint chocolate, cassis and black cherry liqueur with cardamom, clove and anise plus red berry and flower sparks. It’s medium to full-bodied, lush and rounded with firm, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and layered. This is still a baby. 886 cases were made.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040
Another delicious wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific example of the year. Creamy and beautifully layered on the palate, the 2013 captures all of the pedigree of this great vintage in a style that offers a bit more immediacy than many other wines. Best of all, the Cabernet Sauvignon is a remarkable value. Bright red stone fruit, mint, white flowers and tobacco add nuance on the silky yet powerful finish.
