2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1274065 95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The top cabernets from 2013 continue to develop well—this relatively late release from Duckhorn has benefited from its time in bottle, feeling vibrant, with a dynamic interplay of tart cherry flavors and brisk, refreshing tannins. Renee Ary, who was promoted to lead winemaker at Duckhorn in 2014, blended this wine from estate-grown cabernet and purchased fruit; 45 percent of the lot aged in new French oak barrels, adding to the savory black-olive richness of the tannins, while the purple fruit drives past any direct impression of oak. Instead, there’s a sense of cherry bark, a fruitwood aroma, or a woodland mushroom fruitiness. That integration allows the wine to present its energy unfettered, revealing a mouthwatering Napa Valley cabernet that’s ready to decant and set to develop further in the cellar. Inner quote mark (4/2017)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of brambleberries, flowers and wet earth follow through to a medium body, a solid core of fruit and a fresh finish. Dusty tannin texture. Solid. Drink in 2018. Inner quote mark (12/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A supple, charming, easy-to-enjoy style that captures pure, rich currant and dark berry flavors, with smooth tannins accented by spice, mocha and light oak. The finish sails on and on. (JL, Web-2017) Inner quote mark

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Sinewy leather, tobacco and dried herb intertwine on the thick, full-bodied palate in this unfussy red that should appeal to a broad spectrum of tastes. (VB) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
