2013 Sodaro Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

A little more typical of Napa with high-toned fruit character, but there is a backbone of tannins that gives this form and beauty. -- 92 points, JamesSuckling.com, December 2016

Description

 A 100% varietal wine aged in entirely new French oak, this is a big-bodied, grippy wine. It's slightly syrupy with ripe red fruit and a complexity of dried herbs and cedar, which makes it a fine representative of the relatively cooler appellation from which it comes. -- from Wine Enthusiast (92 points).  Received a Double Gold medal in the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Vineyard Notes

A warm, dry spring brought early bud break, helped with canopy vigor and berry size and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set under sunny skies. With the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July, temperatures were consistently in the zone for optimal vine activity, resulting in notably healthy vines as fruit went through veraison and started ripening. The August 1 start of harvest was the earliest in recent history. White wine grapes came in at a furious pace throughout that month, moving on to lighter reds by early September. Two brief mid-September rains had virtually no impact on the grapes.

Ratings

James Suckling - 92 points (December 2016) Wine Enthusiast - 92 points Wine Advocate - 93+ points (December 2017). Is deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy/meaty nose with hints of dried herbs and forest floor over a core of warm plums and black cherries. The medium-bodied mouth offers a lovely backbone of fine-grained tannins supporting the understated fruit, finishing on a mineral note. Jeb Dunnuck - 90+ points.
