SKIPSTONE PROPRIETARY RED, FAULTLINE VINEYARD, ALEXANDER VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: Powerful and firmly-structured, this beauty shows its mountain pedegree from start to finish. The nose offers scents of black cherry, blueberry, mulberry, violet, rose, cedar, toasted oak, tobacco, baking spices, star anise and hard-edged mineral notes in a classy harmony. All those scents are represented on the palate, where concentrated fruit, dark chocolate, cola, licorice root and peppercorn flavors dominate and hints of black tea and Thai basil chime-in. Zest, minerality and firming tannins give the fruit an impression of coiled energy, yet the elegance of the wines ultra-long finish should make it a fine companion to filet mignon tournedos even at this early stage. Expect five to ten years of steady improvement. A blend of 63% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot, 168 cases made.
