WA 92 Vinous 91 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon lived up to its pre-bottling expectations and has beautiful depth of fruit, a layered, seamless texture, solid mid-palate concentration and a great finish. If it came from Napa it would sell for three times the price. Revealing classic cassis, blackcurrants, licorice, and background tobacco and herbal notes, drink it anytime over the coming decade."
According to Josh Raynolds - "Inky purple. Potent blackcurrant, cherry and licorice scents show a strong spicy overtone. Smoky, densely packed dark berry and floral pastille flavors are energized by a peppery note and given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes broad and sweet, with a late note of vanilla and round tannins."
According to Wine Spectator - "Shows off jazzy, mocha-laced oak, accented by dried berry, currant, sage and cedar notes. Ends dry and firm, with a cleansing finish. Drink now through 2026."
Winemakers Notes - "Soft ripe blackberries and cooked black current dominate the initial aroma both on the mouth and nose. The seamless texture of vanilla bean and holiday spices combined with rich black fruit and cedar are evidence of true balance. There are firm tannins that are softened by bright acidity. Finally, there is an explosion of ripe raspberries and blueberries, with a hint of tobacco and pepper on the finish." 13.9% ABV.
