2013 Napa Valley The Cornerstone
Dark and concentrated in color. This luscious Cabernet is packed with intense aromas of plum, blackberries and black licorice. Give it a swirl to release another layer of seductive ripe fruit aroma, wrapped in a blanket of baking spices with a touch of toasty vanilla. Your first sip will confirm the notion that the 2013 vintage produced some amazing Cabernet in Napa Valley. Ripe and juicy fruit leads the way, with a complex symphony of blackberry, some dark cocoa and a bit of licorice. A velvety blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc all from the famed UC Davis Oakville Station vineyard. Still youthful, this is a balanced wine that will definitely go the distance. Give it some time in the cellar and your patience will be rewarded.
