VINEYARD 29 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "CRU" NAPA VALLEY 2013 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
A large production (about 5,500 cases) of Cabernet Sauvignon from purchased fruit, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru is meant to be drunk by eager consumers unable to defer gratification, as well as any restaurant looking for a realistically priced and delicious, dense Napa Cabernet. The 2013, which is no surprise, is basically two-thirds from St. Helena-area vineyards, and is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It has terrific aromatics of spring flowers, licorice, tobacco leaf, charcoal and a touch of graphite. The superb aromatics lead to a seductive, juicy, soft, round opulent style of wine, with medium to full body, an opaque purple color, and gorgeous ripeness and richness.
One of the best values in Napa Valley Cabernet, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru is quite aromatic and savory in this vintage. Sweet red cherry jam, espresso and wild flowers add nuance as this plump, expressive Cabernet shows off its racy personality. As always, the Cru delivers superb quality and value in a rich, super-ripe style that is the hallmark of the Vineyard 29 wines. Hints of graphite and mocha add the final shades of nuance. 2015 - 2021 Josh Raynolds Oct 2015
