PERLISS CABERNET SAUVIGNON "THE RAVEN", CALISTOGA NAPA VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This immediately impressive Cab is darkly ripe, concentrated and focused, and if clearly youthful it is truly satisfying already. The nose is a juicy mix of black raspberry, olallieberry, mulberry, blueberry, black cherry and black fig fruit tied to sweet-savory notes of Victorian toffee, baking-spice and espresso beans. It is luxuriously rich on the palate, where the tannins are blanketed by a wave of black raspberry, mulberry, black fig, date sugar, coffee toffee, humidor-spice, licorice root, clove, coffee bean, and dark chocolate. Lingering and delicious now, it will grow ever more expressive over the next five years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 400 cases produced.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ravens is slightly more polished, displaying a denser purple color, more vivid, sweet blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, and a hint of earthiness. It’s long and rich, with supple tannin, good acidity and terrific palate presence. It should drink well for at least 15-20 years. Drink Date 2015 - 2035 Robert Parker 29th Oct 2015
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ravens Vineyard has turned out beautifully. Dense and powerful in the glass, with lovely ferrous undertones, the Ravens Cabernet is one of the most distinctive wines being made in Calistoga. Savory and mineral notes wrap around a core of red-fleshed stone fruits. This beautifully balanced, harmonious Cabernet possesses terrific balance. It should drink well with minimal cellaring. Winemaker Aaron Pott has done a fabulous job coaxing out the personality of this site. Drink 2018 - 2033 Antonio Galloni Oct 2015
