2013 Vintage Notes

The 2013 growing season was 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.

Calitoga Appellation

The Calistoga AVA is located in the northern portion of California's Napa Valley AVA. The appellation is distinguished by its volcanic soil, high temperatures up to 100 °F  during the day, and cool nights during the growing season due to breezes from the Russian River, causing the highest diurnal temperature variation in the Napa Valley—up to 50 °F. Because of this temperature variation the wines produced from this AVA are a touch bigger and bolder. 

2013
Cultivar Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2013 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon is dark purple in color, almost black.  Dark cherry fruit with black currant notes are intertwined with dark cocoa and coffee notes. Hues of tobacco, black pepper and floral notes bring the nose all together.  The Calistoga Cabernet on the palate follows the nose, rich dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit command mouth with fine tannins, spices and cocoa. A long linger rich finish. This is classic Cabernet from Calistoga. We see this wine aging for at least an additional ten years. 

Our favorite pairings are a prime rib roast or your best steak off the grill.
