2013 Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2013 Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark ruby color with explosive aromatics of blackberry, mulberry, and allspice. The palate is richly textured with big fruit flavors of wild currant, cassis, and blackberry pie along with notes of herbs, licorice, and cardamom. This wine is full bodied with ripe fruit and firm tannins. This Cabernet is from the western hills of Yountville. Drink now through 2025.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2013 harvest was unbelievable in many ways, coming after an amazing 2012 vintage. The 2013 vintage was even more amazing. 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 of the decade.
