World's End If 6 Was 9 Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 23501


IF SIX WAS NINE is the Estate's take on a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon varietal wine. However, being from Bordeaux it's difficult to live with just one variety! So a little Merlot is blended in to help the middle palate and Cabernet Franc to provide just that extra bit of lift.

Wine EnthusiastSoftened by 6% Merlot, this lovely concoction opens with a waft of smoky cigar box, becoming a bold, loud expression of the variety dotted in classic notes of cassis and cedar. A luxuriously velvety texture is the standout, though, supported by great structure and length.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon If Six Was Nine is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot aged 20% in new French oak and the rest in one- and two-year-old barrels. This has a nice, crème de cassis and black raspberry aromatics, medium to full-bodied flavors, good, ripe tannin, a nice textured mouthfeel, excellent purity, richness and length. This wine represents a good value among high-end Napa Cabernet Sauvignons and should drink well for 12-15 or more years
