GRASSI CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY 2013
A dark, sensual wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon graces the palate with expressive blue and dark red fruit, cinnamon, cloves, licorice, menthol and new leather. Drink this bold, racy Cabernet over the next decade or so. The 2013 offers a fabulous combination of concentration, mid-palate depth and intensity, but with silky tannins that give it tons of near and medium-term appeal. The 2013 finishes with striking freshness and a closing note of sweet French oak.
A rustic, rich and juicy style, with racy blackberry and currant flavors that are tempered by toasty, cedary oak, turning to mocha and crushed rock details on the finish. Drink now. 700 cases made. Issue Jul 31, 2016 JL
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from hillside vineyards in Soda Canyon, is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in about two-thirds new French oak. The wine displays notes of roasted herbs, white chocolate, blackcurrant, dusty and loamy soil undertones and an elegant, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with nicely integrated wood, acidity and tannin. It is not the most complex, but it’s youthful, still coiled relatively tight and probably will evolve for 15-20 years. Drink Date 2014 - 2034. Robert M. Parker, Jr. 27th Oct 2015
