Our 2013 Grigsby Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the deepest, richest, most complete and blanced version of this wine we've ever produced. it shows gorgeous weight and density, supported by the equisitely resolved tannins of the extraordinary 2013 vintage. The overall theme here is one of perfectly ripe dark red fruit, especially sweet black cherries, beautifully complemented by sophisticated spice and floral elements as well as prominent notes of vineyard dust and rock quarry dust. The quality of the vintage is particularly evident on the mid-palate, where tremendous richness perfectly matches the luscious black cherry flavors, and on a hightly polished, silky smooth finish that seems to last forever. This is one that we'll be enjoying for a long, long time to come.
Our 2013 Collinetta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect illustration of everything that makes this extraordinary vintage so special. Even by Collinetta’s standards, this is an exceptionally deep, intense, powerful wine. There’s a ton of dark ripe blackberry and sweet black currant character here, charmingly highlighted by elegant notes of violets, dark chocolate, wet cobblestones, and spicy oak. Most remarkable, though, is the wine’s exquisite balance and beautiful delineation. The classic Coombsville tannins – thick, rich, and sophisticated – are riper and more perfectly resolved than we’ve ever seen them, and the overall impression is one of great purity and precision and focus. This Cabernet’s structure, concentration, and seamless harmony should ensure 20 years or more of beautiful evolution in the bottle.
