Red Wine 2013

The Paring

Classic aromas of cedar and cassis. Pure expression of black and red fruit with lovely herbal notes of sincere cabernet sauvignon. A plush texture combined with a rigid backbone of tannin structure make this wine a truly memorable drinking experience. Classy and regal. A beauty for the cellar and the table tonight.

Reviews

  • "90 points. The 2013 Red is bold and pungent to the core. Black cherry, mocha, black olives, spices, lavender and sage hit the palate in the 2013. This is an especially serious, structured wine for the money. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The Franc is felt in the wine's savory, expressive personality. This is a delicious wine for the money." (vinous)
