Napa Valley, USA
750ml / 14.5% ABV
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The two red wines include the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Pleinair, which comes from Napa vineyards Atlas Peak, St. Helena, Diamond Mountain and Howell Mountain. Aged 20 months in 53% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, the wine is a beauty, with notes of loamy soil interwoven with red and blackcurrants, tobacco leaf and forest floor. It is medium to full-bodied, shows excellent purity, a nicely layered mouthfeel and ripe tannins. It should drink well for at least 15 or more years. (RP) (10/2015)A reduction of tar and meaty leather at first overrides elusive fruit in this 100% varietal wine. It's alluring nonetheless, for its soft tannins and toasted hits of oak. Currant, clove and tobacco give a savory, compelling and complex edge to the full-bodied frame.
Pairs beautifully with slightly fattier steaks like ribeye and sirloin served rare to medium-rare, a good burger, roast lamb, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
