The Panek Vineyard, simply put, is made for a year like 2013! Typically plush, bright and singing with vine-ripe blueberry and hints of violet, this year's 'Panek' is beholden to the structure and intensity of the vintage. The fruit elements that define this single-vineyard Cabernet are ever-present but hints of graphite and warm bergamot-scented tea give the wine a notably darker demeanor. While our Panek Cabernet has always loved a little rest breathing room or cellar age to show its best, we have no doubt that the 2013 vintage will be the longest lived bottling of this wine that we have delivered to date.

Wine AdvocateA vineyard made famous by Thomas Rivers Brown, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 337 in St. Helena. This is a stunner with a beautiful floral fragrance interwoven with blueberry and blackberry fruit, graphite and incense. It is dense, full-bodied with the blue and black fruits continuing across the full-bodied palate. The wine has superb purity and moderate tannin. This wine should drink well for 20-25 years.
