This wine strikes a captivating balance between power and finesse showing its classic Oakville Cabernet style. The delicious core of layered black fruit is imbued with rich mocha and toasty vanilla with subtle traces of fresh bay and black pepper. Its dense, rich mouth feel, complexity and long finish will delight your palate.
91 Points Tasting Panel - "Dark, smooth and rich with plum, cassis and spice; lush, balanced and tangy with elegant style and a long finish."
91 Points Vinous - The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is another succulent, expressive wine that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Mocha, plums, espresso, dark spices and menthol all meld together. This is an unusually open, juicy 2013 with plenty of flesh and near term appeal.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Tightly wound, with a muscular mix of lead pencil and graphite accenting the core of dense berry, earth, gravel and cedary oak notes. Slowly reveals black licorice, anise and savory herb flavors, but needs cellaring time. Best from 2019 through 2030.
