Winemaker Notes :

Ripe black fruit aromas pour from the glass followed by notes of spice, cocoa, black tea and hibiscus. The full bodied palate is dense with the flavors of cocoa, blackberry and brown sugar, carried on smooth tannins and supple texture. The flavors of tea, mocha and cherries carry through on the long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope comes from the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas Mountains. It is 100 % Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted at 1,700 feet. This is a remarkable wine and reminiscent of the great classics from the golden era of the Mayacamas on the Napa side (such as the 1968, 1970, 1973 and 1974) come to mind when tasting this beauty. It is simply loaded. Dense purple in color, the wine has notes of licorice, crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, cedar wood and earth. Full-bodied, opulent and irresistible already, it is capable (because of the impeccable balance and purity) of aging 20-25 or more years. This is a modern-day classic that could compete with very finest Cabernet-based wines in the world.
