2013 was a beautiful, near perfect vintage for Napa with a warm spring and a hot, but not harsh, summer. This lead to grapes being harvested two weeks earlier than usual. The fruit for this particular vintage is mostly from Grgich’s Yountville vineyard, with additional grapes sourced from their Rutherford and Calistoga plots (all three are certified organic). The result is a full bodied, elegant Cabernet representing the terroir flawlessly. Minimal intervention techniques are utilized from start to finish, and each lot is aged separately to heighten the complexity of the blend. In total the wine spends 21 months in French oak, 60% of which is new. The wine’s complex flavors of black currants, clove and mocha are topped off by licorice. Its full-bodied, rich mouthfeel carries these flavors for a long, lingering finish that loves seared steak, Gorgonzola gnocchi, beef bourguignon and ratatouille.
