"King Coal" 2013

K Vintners

No. 2 pencil shavings and graphite take the lead in this Cabernet Sauvignon driven wine. Red and black currant, dried herb, crushed stone carries through a layer of complex and full bodied palate. From the same vineyard of the Royal City Syrah… all hail the King!

Reviews

  • "95 points. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon King Coal Stoneridge Vineyard, which is always a 70/30 mix of Cabernet and Syrah, is a beauty. Giving up lots of black currants, smoked earth, olive and background meatiness, it’s rich, voluptuously textured and concentrated, with tons to love. It’s approachable now due to all the fruit, but this puppy will cruise in the cellar over the coming couple of decades." (Wine Advocate)
  • "91 points. Healthy medium red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry and truffle. Plush and nicely concentrated, conveying a savory character to the flavors of plum, mocha, truffle and new oak. An herbal edge on the finish accentuates the tannins, giving this rather high-pH wine (3.92) needed firmness. This will be even better for a couple years of patience." (vinous)
