Description

Details

Robert Parker 91 Pts. - The Wine Advocate - "From proprietor Andy Hoxsey, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays classic pure cassis and an opaque purple color, in a reserved but exuberant, concentrated, full-bodied style with low acidity and ripe, well-integrated, lush tannins. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. "

Tasting Notes - "Intense, overt aromas of blackberry and raspberry; hints of tobacco and herbs tempting you towards your first sip. The wine is classic Cabernet on the palate with enticing flavors of mature plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate; lengthened by the integrated background of cedar, nutmeg and vanilla. One of the finest expressions of the Rock Cairn Vineyard, ever!" 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec. 14.2% ABV.

Vineyards: The fruit for the 2013 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our family-owned Rock Cairn vineyard. The 30-year-old vineyard in Oakville, Napa Valley is 100% Certified Organic. The site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. 

Winemaker Notes: 2013 was a wonderful vintage, a winemaker’s vintage. The season was very consistent, timely, and manageable. The grapes were small berries allowing for maximum skin contact, making our 2013 Cabernet dark and luscious with smooth, round tannins.
