2013 Tonella Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is dark in color with fresh fruit aromas of black cherry, roasted strawberries, currants, fine-grained leather, red plum, fresh toast, and baking spices. On the palate, the wine has dense tannin on entry, carrying into the mid-palate and then onto a fresh, bright and flavorful finish. Cellar 15-20 years. Winery Exclusive

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2013 harvest was unbelievable in many ways. The near floods at the end of 2012 set us up nicely to weather the very dry season of 2013. Hardly a speck 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 confidently say that this vintage looks to be the vintage of the decade.
