Winemaker Notes
A gorgeous expression of Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine begins with effusive aromas of blackberry, marionberry and black cherry. As it evolves, layers of mocha, cinnamon and clove reveal themselves, as well as hints of sarsaparilla and black licorice, all of which frame the fruit, while adding depth and nuance. The palate is supple and juicy, with a voluminous texture, hedonistic black fruit and a complex French oak-inspired spice box note that carries through to a long and sophisticated finish.
Production
The 2013 vintage offered picture-perfect growing conditions on Red Mountain, with gorgeous warm weather all season long and an ideally timed cooldown in the run-up to harvest. Though summer temperatures were consistently above average, there were few prolonged heat events. Cooler weather late in the season provided sunny days in the low 80s and nights in the mid-50s. This allowed for an extra two weeks of flavor development, while also ensuring fully ripened tannins, resulting in Cabernet Sauvignon with considerable gravitas and volume, as well as finesse and a supple, rounded texture.

Juicy dark fruit with oaky spices and firm tannins. A bit more forward acidity than its California counterparts, but with wonderful structure to complement
