2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Sodaro 2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible with layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, soft and lush yet with classic structure and balance.

A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and 2% Malbec. Received 93 points from James Suckling in December 2016.

Tasting Notes

Our Sodaro 2013 Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible with layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, soft and lush yet with classic structure and balance.  Subtle aromas of espresso and dark chocolate followed by hints of vanilla bean explode the senses with tannins that are well integrated into the fruit creating a wine that is both immediately accessible and age worthy.

Vineyard Notes

The 2013 growing season was another near perfect Napa Valley vintage.  A warm and dry spring brought on early bud break and  those sun drenched days were ideal for flowering and fruit set in our Coombsville vineyard.  Temperatures throughout the 2013 growing season were consistent with very few heat spikes resulting  in healthy balanced fruit and even ripening.  With no rain forecasted throughout October, the sunny, warm weather allowed us to pick precisely when our grapes were ripe and  ready.  With yields slightly less  bountiful than in 2012, the 2013 quality exceeded that equally near perfect vintage and produced age worthy wines with structure, balance, deep dark color and concentrated flavors. .

Production Notes

Our Felicity Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from Sodaro estate-grown fruit and aged 20 months in French Oak. It is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and 2% Malbec.

Ratings

James Suckling - 93 points (December 2016) Wine Enthusiast - 91 points California Wine Advisor - 96 points (Classic) Wine Advocate - 90 points (December 2017). Opens with a crème de cassis and menthol-scented nose with hints of mulberries, spice cake and incense. Medium-bodied with open-knit black berry and spicy flavors, it is well-poised with soft tannins.
