The near floods at the end of 2012 set us up nicely to weather the very dry season of 2013. Hardly a drop of rain fell for the entire season. The growth season started earlier, giving us plenty of time to ripen another solid crop. Harvest was a dream. This was the first vintage in a long time where the moderate fall temperatures meant winemakers were truly able to take their time (no rain nor heat spikes) to get in the way of bringing in nearly perfect grapes. Many are confidently saying that this vintage looks to be the vintage
The grapes for the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon come from the finest vineyard sites in the best appellations of Napa Valley, including the Sequoia Grove Estate and Tonella Estate Vineyards in Rutherford, as well as select parcels from top growers, including Morisoli and Beckstoffer in Rutherford.
