This opaque dark ruby-colored wine is rich in ripe black currant, blackberry and blueberry aromas. There are some complexities of forest floor, aromatic cedar, tobacco, cinnamon toast, and dark chocolate truffle with cocoa dust. The oak is very well integrated, adding just the right amount of spice. The wine has great depth of black fruits with a strong expression of sweet black cherry in the flavor. Consistent with the vintage 2013, this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has a firm tannin structure, lending itself well to years of enjoyment.

Details

Vineyard Notes

Sycamore Vineyard—Rutherford (100%): Small 24-acre vineyard located about 1.2 miles south of Bosché, right up against the Mayacamas Range, this vineyard has a rich clay loam. Sycamore Vineyard produces small berries reminiscent of mountain fruit berries, with intense extract of color and flavor. The color is very dark early in the fermentation, with flavors of black currant and blackberry with a forest floor complexity.
