2013  Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Coombsville 3-Pack

2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Coombsville 3-Pack

Packaged in a Custom Birch Box
A deep, intensely mineral wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville) offers up a compelling melange of grilled herbs, smoke, black cherry jam and sweet spices.  The interplay of savory and more opulent, fruit-driven notes is compelling.  There is so much to like here. Drink 2017-2028.

VINEYARD:  Bennett Vineyard, Coombsville

NOTES: The 2013 PATEL Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is one of two NEW AVA designated PATEL Cabernets to be released in Fall 2016.  Sourced from the Bennett Vineyard, this inky purple wine is brimming with fruit.  Notes of plum and cherry are balanced with bright acidity and the beautiful tannins linger in a long, luscious finish. 

Inky garnet in color, this wine smells of cherry and tobacco and a hint of dried flowers.  In the mouth, gorgeously juicy cherry and black cherry flavors mix with tobacco and green herbs.  Fantastic acidity and wonderfully powdery, silky tannins...

VINTAGE: The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest in recent history with above average yields.  A warm dry spring brought early bud break.  With the exception of one heat spike, temperatures were optimal, resulting in notably healthy vines through veraison and ripening. Following mid-September rains, sunny, breezy weather dried out the vines.  Cooler, sunny weather throughout October extended the hang time, allowing sugar levels to remain steady while flavors continued to mature.

VINIFICATION: Arriving in small picking lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry by berry. A two day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless steel tanks.  The fruit was gently pressed after an extended maceration and the wine was moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine was aged for 19 months in rare 100% New French Artisan Oak barrels with minimal racking.  Multiple blending trials determined the final blend, which was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
