2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L

Our Sodaro 2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible with layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, soft and lush yet with classic structure and balance. Subtle aromas of espresso and dark chocolate followed by hints of vanilla bean explode the senses with tannins that are well integrated into the fruit creating a wine that is both immediately accessible and age worthy.

About This Wine:
This is a beautifully expressive wine that will please fans of classically styled Napa Cabernet. The bouquet is loaded with black cherry, spice box, and a complex earthiness. The palate shows plenty of forward red and blackcurrant, but also sage, cut cigar, and vanillin. This is a luscious wine that will provide pleasure for at least another 5 years.

Vineyard Notes:

A warm, dry spring brought early bud break, helped with canopy vigor and berry size and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set under sunny skies. With the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July, temperatures were consistently in the zone for optimal vine activity, resulting in notably healthy vines as fruit went through veraison and started ripening. The August 1 start of harvest was the earliest in recent history. White wine grapes came in at a furious pace throughout that month, moving on to lighter reds by early September. Two brief mid-September rains had virtually no impact on the grapes.
