TIERRA ROJA CABERNET SAUVIGNON "ESTATE", OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This gorgeous Cabernet captures the purity and intensity of great vintage Oakville fruit while showcasing this vineyard’s own special note of elegance. The nose marries deep black cherry, red currant, Cassis and blueberry fruit to sweet-savory scents of vanilla pipe tobacco, baking-spice and hints of dried sage and laurel. It displays structure and vibrant zest on the palate, yet it is already supple in texture, which ties a feminine bow around otherwise penetrating mid-palate and finishing flavors. The lasting memory is of a rush of sweet-natured red cherry, dark cherry, red and black currant, blueberry, blood orange, star anise, laurel, sage, tobacco and baking spices over a streak of dark minerality. Certain to improve for five years and well beyond, it is a terrific dinner wine already. 225 cases produced.
Made from a site on the eastern edge of the appellation, along the Silverado Trail, this 100% varietal wine opens in smoky campfire and cigar. Perfumed in clove and wild sage, it remains smooth and full bodied on the palate, imparting an enviable richness and layering of juicy plum, black currant and berry. 2/1/2017 Virginie Boone
