Our 2013 Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon has a very dark crimson color, with a bright purple rim. Cassis, black cherry, black pepper and espresso fill the very fragrant nose. The flavors are similar with ripe black cherry, dark chocolate and cabernet spice impressions, and the wine is lush fruit-forward yet balanced. The finish is lingering, with nuances of black tea and blueberry. It is definitely enjoyable now and over the next 5 years.
