- Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013 Product #30317 (In Stock)
Fisher specializes in marrying the rich fruit and power of Napa Valley to the more supple, round, character of Sonoma County Cabernet - "Unity." The 2013 is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon plus 12% Malbec and dollops of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot from Napa and the Mayacamus Mountains. It's a rich and sweetly fruited wine with plenty of intensity to the red and black currant fruit with accents of smoke, coffee, and spice. Supple and easy to drink, but with enough structure for steak. A classy, delicious, Cab.
- Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30884 (In Stock)
After struggling for much of the early 2000s, Flora Springs looks to have returned to good form in the past few vintages. The style here is “focused Napa” – plenty of ripeness channeled by solid acid and tannic structure. Loads of dark currant, coffee, chocolate and oaky spice on the nose are followed by ripe black currant fruit lifted by tangy acids and accented by bitter chocolate and coffee ground notes. The dusty tannins are bold enough to shine with grilled steak, but this is soft enough to just drink alone as well. Rock-solid Napa Cab.
"This is a big, bold and grippy wine, reflective of the vintage in its classic structure and age-worthiness. Cedar, black cherry and chalky tannins give it character and seasoning. The smooth, silky texture should take on additional velvetiness in the glass. It finishes with finesse."Wine Enthusiast 91 points
