Provenance 2013 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Capturing the bold personality of a vineyard high up on the Howell Mountain plateau, this very limited bottling of 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and powerful, revealing deep, highly extracted blackberry, cassis and plum character. Its saturated color and complex nuances of baking chocolate, earthy forest-loam, dried rose petal, bay laurel and espresso reveal its sourcing of vines rooted in iron-laden, red volcanic loam soil. The muscular tannins are dynamic and chewy and amply support the expansive flavors through the persistent finish.
Provenance 2013 Sleeping Lady Cabernet Sauvignon
The fabulous 2013 vintage gave great intensity to the layered aromatics and rich, expansive palate of our Sleeping Lady Cabernet Sauvignon. This limited bottling captures the distinctive personality of a single Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard located against the western hills of Napa Valley. The wine’s effusive aromas of crushed black cherry, blackberry, violet and wild sage lead to deep sensual, dark-fruit flavors. With its structure of muscular tannins, appealing acidity and opulent texture, this wine shows a beautiful balance of power and elegance. We aged the wine in 60 percent new French oak barrels to integrate oak notes of caramel, spice, dark chocolate and coffee bean with the lingering, dark-fruit finish.
Provenance 2013 To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon
With intense, ripe flavors and powerful structure, the 2013 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon dazzles with the personality of this famous vineyard. The wine’s luxuriously rich crème de cassis, blackberry and black cherry character unfolds with nuances of rum raisin, forest loam, coffee bean and bay laurel. Pecan and oak spice notes from new French oak barrels meld with the Cabernet Sauvignon expression, from the generous aromas through the broad, dark-fruit finish. Its muscular tannins enhance the textured palate and make it age-worthy, while bright, mouthwatering acidity balances the sun-ripened flavors. This limited bottling exemplifies perfectly balanced power and elegance as it captures its sense of place — To Kalon Vineyard.
