Winemaker Erich Bradley Notes
The 2013 vintage provided idyllic weather conditions in Napa Valley, with moderate heat during the core summer months, and just enough high heat and dry conditions to ripen the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at an even pace. Thicker skins and even ripening conditions resulted in balanced, complex wines of depth and nuance. For winemakers, the vintage offered near-perfect conditions to pick the grapes at optimum ripeness for a classic style of Napa Valley wine. In 2013, the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon was both cluster and berry sorted, so only perfect berries made it into the fermenter. It spent nearly four weeks on skins to ensure that the tannins and fruit flavors were balanced. Darnajou and Taransaud barrels were used for aging.
