Jarvis Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
90 Points - Wine Spectator
Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from our hillside estate vineyards following a delightfully warm and lengthy growing season. The additional hang time on the vine is apparent upon first glance, with its dark ruby and purple hue that is absolutely inviting, with an enticingly eclectic bouquet of blackberry, mulberry, coriander, allspice and graphite. The vibrant and nuanced aromas lead to a mouth-filling and focused palate. The palate is supple and refined, with notes of currant, black olive, cassis and forest floor - flavors that exude 'classic' Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The densely textured palate is balanced by its vibrant acidity, fine tannins and a long pure finish. It is a wine of stunning intensity, focus and depth. This wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 30 months prior to bottling, and underwent extended bottle aging in the Jarvis caves prior to release.
Aromas of fresh-cut oak figure prominently, adding complex cedar and anise notes and giving backbone to the savory herb elements. Ends as its starts, with nice oak and fruit to match. Drink now through 2027. 2,550 cases made.
