Signature Gift Set
2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Laki's Vineyard, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley
95 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2015 “An absolutely brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon from southern Napa Valley and the Oak Knoll area, this 2013 tips the scales at 15% alcohol. It has a dense purple color, a gorgeous nose of crème de cassis, graphite, blackberry and a touch of oak and a full-bodied, opulent, voluptuous texture, great purity and a stunning finish. This is sensational stuff and a terrific 2013. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.” - Robert Parker
In its sophomore season, this Cabernet is massive and rich, yet restrained. The color is deep and black and the nose is powerful and bold with explosive notes of chocolate, epresso, cherry reduction, raspberry preserves and overripe plum. There is a delightful cherry-drop in the heart of this wine. Like the jammy fruit center of a jelly doughnut, a very dense, bold and velvety red fruit flavor emerges as a delicious surprise. Flavors of cherry candy, blackberry, cassis, dried currant and espresso bean flood the mouth to find every last taste bud on the palate. The oak is rich and the mouthfeel is lavish. Firm tannins and a distinct sense of terroir create a sensational, well-rounded finish. PRODUCTION: 630 CASES.
Dutton Ranch, Russian River Valley
Derived from old vines and rooted in powdery Goldridge soil, this is a vibrant and refreshing white wine, bursting with aromas of honeysuckle, marshmallow and citrus zest. The 25% new French oak curves the aromas with hints of roast vanillin and balances the middle palate. A flood of lemon tart and fresh tropical fruit flavors hold steady for a lengthy finish. The acidity is threaded through this wine for a stimulating mouthfeel. Properly cellared, this wine will drink well to 2021 and beyond. PRODUCTION: 415 CASES
