C. BECK CABERNET SAUVIGNON, BARLOW VINEYARD, CALISTOGA NAPA VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This is an archetypical 2013 Cabernet and its darkly ripe, concentrated aromas of Creme de Cassis, black cherry, sour cherry, Italian Maraschino cherry, black fig, dark tobacco, coffee bean, dried herbs and forest earth are poised above a brighter, more piquant note of pomegranate. Things prove as bold and blustery on the palate as expected, yet the wine’s dramatic ripeness is braced by tannic grip and bright fruit acidity, which both reveals the wines youth and suggests that greater elegance can be expected in time. The finish is a wave of beautifully balanced, perfectly focused fruit and sweet-savory goodness that leaves a lingering memory of cherries, red berries, Cassis, humidor spice, sweet vanilla and dried herbs. Terrific now, it should be stunning in five or six years. 229 cases made.
