Galerie "Pleinair" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013  


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)

93 points Wine Enthusiast   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.  

 

The 2013 Galerie Napa Valley Pleinair is deep purple, with potent aromas of blackcurrant, red cherry, roasted coffee beans, fresh tobacco leaves and forest floor underneath floral notes. With a full palate of elegant tannins, the mouthfeel is long and full of red fruit and spices.

Pairs beautifully with slightly fattier steaks like ribeye and sirloin served rare to medium-rare, a good burger, roast lamb, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
