2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, soft and lush yet with classic structure and balance.  Tannins that are well integrated into the fruit creating a wine that is both accessible and age worthy.  Crafted from Sodaro estate grown fruit and aged 20 months in French Oak.  Our 2013 "Felicity" Cabernet is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and 2% Malbec.

93 points, JamesSuckling.com (December 2016) --A subtle red with chocolate, berry and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, tight and solid tannins and a flavorful finish. A beauty. Drink or hold.

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:

The 2013 growing season was another near perfect Napa Valley vintage.  A warm and dry spring brought on early bud break and  those sun drenched days were ideal for flowering and fruit set in our Coombsville vineyard.  Temperatures throughout the 2013 growing season were consistent with very few heat spikes resulting  in healthy balanced fruit and even ripening.  With no rain forecasted throughout October, the sunny, warm weather allowed us to pick precisely when our grapes were ripe and  ready.  With yields slightly less  bountiful than in 2012, the 2013 quality exceeded that equally near perfect vintage and produced age worthy wines with structure, balance, deep dark color and concentrated flavors. .
