2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
“The complexity of the varietal character ranges from green peppercorn to fir balsam to sweet fennel seed. Beautiful oak notes of cedar, vanilla bean and unsweetened chocolate. The balanced acidity and pleasing, soft tannins lend persistence and mouthwatering qualities. You may enjoy this wine tonight or cellar it or both.” – Ashley Heisey
An early bud break, one of the longest flowering periods in years, and a long growing season produced a vintage that shines in quality. Spring started fast and the early bloom was followed by cooler temperatures, wind, and rains which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest in August.
