The 2013 Vintage has slight floral aromas that jump out of the glass initially, but quickly fades into developed fruits such as dried cherries and plum.

Hints of toasted vanilla and spice add to the developing complexities of this young wine. With a dense core, a rich and creamy texture adds to the appeal. Savory yet sweet, this wine comes off as being very broad and supple yet there is brightness to the acidity that surfaces and carries through the finish. Sure to be a crowd pleaser, enjoy for years to come.

58% New French Oak
Alc. 14.8%
Blend:  92% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

Vintage Notes
2013

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. There were a couple of heat spikes, and a few small events that had minimal effect on ripening and quality.  With that said, the warm sunny weather allowed the grapes to stay on the vines as long as necessary, which allowed optimal development of color and flavors. Overall it was an outstanding growing season.
