2013 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Napa Valley
The 2013 vintage exceeded all expectations following on the heels of 2012 – another year that has been described as “nearly perfect.” The stand out character of this vintage was the extraordinary gift of enabling us to pick exactly what we wanted, when we wanted, at perfect ripeness and ideal hang time. Fall weather settled in early and that coupled with zero rain pressure allowed a more mellow approach to ripeness which created wines with amazing fruit textures, dark color and firm structure.
Dark ruby to the core, the aromatics of this wine boarder on heady and are intoxicating in their pure fruit overtones and deep complexities. The palate is awash with dark fruits and dense ripe blueberries along with cassis, dark chocolate and a hint of clementine flower. The finish is focused with ripe and enveloping tannins bringing this wine into total harmony.
Age this beauty for 2-3 years before trying it and look for it to develop into an amazingly complex wine over 8-12 years in the cellar.
