2013 Cresta Velia Cabernet Sauvignon

With five vintages under our belt, I can safely say this is the best of the bunch.  All the components of the 2013 are a slight step up from the 2012.  Deeper color, more fruit and concentration along with a bit more structure has led to our most serious wine to date.  Dark purple in color with massive aromatics of blue and black fruits, plum and fennel bring you to the rich mouth coating finish of blackberry, earth and bakers chocolate.  If you like your Cabernets young, this will need a healthy decant.  Happy drinking.

"notes of cassis and blackberry liqueur, some licorice and underlying earthy notes.  It is full-bodied, rich, dense and super-impressive for a relatively new producer."    Robert Parker, Wine Advocate                                                                                       95 Points
