We had the 2013 Vintage on 11/19-20/21. This is a real good Cab. Interesting in that the fruit comes from the Valley floor and the hillsides. Tastes of cherry, plum and oak. The bouquet had tobacco and cassis. Full bodied and fruit forward.

Decent wine. Enjoyable, but I didn’t notice as much aroma or flavor as others are espousing. It is soft and round for a cab with the silky velvet tannins and good fruit and some spice and earth, just not super powerful which may be the goal. The best part was the smoothness and black fruits for a cab in Napa.

We had the 2013 Vintage on 1/1-2/21. So this was the first wine of 2021. A good one for sure. There were tastes of plum, current and oak. A little darker than most Valley floor wines. It is well balanced and truly New World

Part of the fun of getting old is forgetting or loosing things is that you ideally find them. Well no such luck today. I had this a while ago but I can’t find my notes and I have given up. I do remember enjoying it but sadly not the nuances that I enjoyed. I do have another bottle so I will update later. Sorry for the lack of useful information tonight.

Delicious. Dark chocolate, voluptuous dark fruits, espresso, and tilled earth.
