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.

Big and powerful, driven by an extracted core of gutsy blackberry, cedary oak, dried herb and anise notes, ending with a full-fisted mix of tannins and earth elements. Drink now through 2030.
