2013 Oakville Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

170.00

2013 is the vintage you have been waiting for…. Intense, rich, dark and delicious! This powerful yet balanced Cabernet is a boldly balanced blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 4% Malbec. The fruit is from the Oakville Station which is part of the historic ToKalon Vineyard and was aged for 33 months in custom French Oak barrels.  Alluring dark fruit aromas draw you in to this wine while deep, rich,explosive flavors of black cherry, wild blackberry, with a hint of anise and sweet mocha-laced oak, fill your mouth. More impressive is the extremely long finish and smooth lingering aftertaste which will entice you to take another sip.

Dark garnet with clear edges.  Effusive nose with crisp icy chords of petrichor frost and a sunny glow of decadent crème brûlée vanilla punctuating rather than smoothing.  Heady match head over incredibly ripe fruit muddles the grainy cinnamon and nutmeg, nearly overwhelming the raw sexy fruit. A sweaty, perfectly integrated bouquet offers bitter tannin from the first moment and will soon rip the cream cheese frosting off the Dr. Pepper and 7UP carrot cake you’re enjoying.
In the mouth, leathery gorilla-knuckles of graham-cracker-crumbs and brown sugar vie with dripping black cherry and toast, painting a picture of no-holds-barred valley loam fruit against ratcheting earth and structure.  The whole scenario here tells a story of another near perfect 2013 Napa Cab, a wine opulent enough to drink today and will easily support two decades of age.
