Oakville East 2013 Oakville Napa Valley Exposure Cabernet Sauvignon

The California Wine Club

Tasting Notes: This is a massive wine that possesses soft, integrated tannins. It begins with the traditional Cabernet aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cherry flavors but the cinnamon, maple, leather, clove, orange blossom, cardamom and violet soon jump into the mix. On the palate, crisp, clean acidity is complemented by cranberry, red currant, pomegranate, strawberry and dark fruit flavors. All this suggests it will need time in the cellar to seduce out its tightly wound layers, but the already existing balance between fruit, acidity and tannins make it hard to resist enjoying immediately. 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast Final Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot Case Production: Only 914 cases produced Pair With: Duck or rib-eye steak Hold Time: Enjoy now or hold up to 20 years Alcohol by Volume: 14.5% Wine club members might be familiar with this selection as we’ve featured the 2010 and 2012 vintages as well.
