The 2013 Heart of the Vineyard has complex aromas dense with hints of chocolate and toast character. Rich berry fruits such as plum and dark cherries invoke a sense of pleasure with a palate that is long and opulent. This remarkable wine exemplifies the power and elegance of Rutherford wines- one of the valley’s most distinctive AVAs..

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose is most provocative and enticing with perfumed dark cherries, black raspberries, kirsch, blueberry, anise and vanilla oak. A boastful palate that is big, bold and mouthwatering. Nice density with layer upon layer of complexity with black cherries, blackberry cream, Crème de cassis, red flowers, currants and sweet vanilla oak

Vintage Notes

Consistency and uniformity are the two words that best sum up the 2013 vintage. A warm dry spring brought on early bud break, and allowed for even flowering. The early start permitted for vigorous canopy development and optimal berry set.  Warm sunny weather allowed the grapes to stay on the vines as long as necessary, which allowed optimal development of color and flavors. Overall, 2013 was a truly exceptional growing season in Rutherford and throughout the Napa Valley.
