2013, in general, was one of the hottest growing years in the Yakima Valley.  We had many summer days with temperatures pushing the mid 90’s.  This lingering heat lasted until late August when the weather switched to unseasonably cooler temperatures for the remainder of harvest.  Because of this, our earlier ripening fruit (Merlot and Syrah) showed warmer climate characteristics. The later ripening Cabernet Sauvignon had the advantage of slowly accumulating sugars, flavor, and color over a several week period prior to harvest.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon wines are ripe, yet enjoy focused fruit flavors and tremendous color and texture -really a tale of two seasons!  The Syrah is very ripe, intense and soft, while, the Cabernet Sauvignon has more perfume.  Additionally these wines exude plenty of dark fruit flavors and lovely tannins.

TASTING NOTES:

The beautiful aromatics of blackberry compote, vanilla and sweet cocoa are nicely balanced by a rounded mouthfeel of bright acidity and spice. Drink now through 2028+.

Only 42 magnums were bottled from the 2013 vintage.
