Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Robert Foley Vineyards

Our 2013 “Purple Label” Napa Valley Cabernet is 100% varietal in composition, yet, again this year, it is a blend of intense ridge-top fruit and our favorite stony Calistoga vineyard – where the high rocks there create thermals, drawing warming air through the vine rows, working the magic of ripening. A deep dark wine, classic ripe Cabernet character of black cherry is carried in the aromas and flavors. The body and middle of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon carry a sweetness of fruit which is framed with gentle tannin. Perfectly ripe and perfectly balanced. .

Reviews

  • "98 points. Equally impressive is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak and Calistoga. Opaque purple to the rim, with beautiful notes of charcoal embers, melted road tar, truffle, blackberry and cassis, this big, unctuously textured, full-bodied wine has incredible density and richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a phenomenal finish. It is young, but undeniably impressive. Give it another 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades-plus." (Robert Parker)
