2013 Vine Cliff Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Enthusiast 92
"Brawny, with an explosive concentration of blackberry, this intense wine offers hints of tobacco, smoked meat and black licorice elevated on the palate. Blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, it finishes on a bittersweet note and with some black pepper. Cellar through 2020."
Wine Tasting Notes
The depth of the vintage is reflected in the Napa Valley Cabernet. It opens with enticing aromas of mocha, black cherries cassis and cedar. On the palate the wine leads off with the richness of Rainier cherry and black currants which are framed by fine grain tannins and balanced acidity on the mid palate. The added dimensions of sweet tobacco, anise and cedar linger on the finish as the tannins melt into the background.
Nestled in a quiet canyon above the Silverado Trail in the world famous Napa Valley stands the breathtaking vineyards of Vine Cliff Winery. Known for rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons from the treasured Oakville Appellation and bold Chardonnays from the acclaimed Carneros District, Vine Cliff Winery prides itself on small lots of intensely flavored, hand-made wines.
