2013 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon

 



Tasting Notes: Full-bodied, juicy, dense, and intense, this vintage of 1886 will age and improve for decades. This wine is spicy, opulent, and complex, chewy with rich elegant tannins. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cocoa, and exotic spices keep it interesting! A beautiful Napa Cabernet, from a beautiful vintage.


Vintage Notes: 2013 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring got the vines off to an exceptionally early start. No frost, no rain, no unusual heat waves, just endless days of California sunshine with classically warm afternoons and those cool nights that the grapevines adore. Budbreak was early, veraison was early, and the tempo continued right up until harvest. Great quality across the board, healthy fermentations, rich, complex, full-bodied wines throughout the Napa Valley.
