The 2013 Lamoreaux Cabernet Sauvignon is slightly more concentrated and intense. This Cabernet is from the Oak Knoll sector of Napa Valley. The blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, nice blackcurrants, licorice and underbrush. It's medium to full-bodied, supple-textured and ideal for drinking over the next decade. Winery Exclusive

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.
