2013 Duckhorn "Patzimaro Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $100)

SKU #1444230 94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This bright, red-fruited cabernet grew at an estate vineyard in western St. Helena, on light, gravelly soils at the base of Spring Mountain. Its time in (mostly new) French oak took the cranberry and floral strawberry flavors of the grapes toward warm baking spice and a rich, spherical structure. What’s impressive about that richness is that it comes without any excess weight, allowing the cool tannins of the vintage and the beauty of the fruit to last. It ends on a bright note of roses, of red fruit and savory, cracked-peppercorn spice, clean and refreshing. Inner quote mark (4/2017)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Calling this wine coarse would be going too far, yet it is more muscular and not as refined as either of its two above-reviewed cellarmates, and, if it is arguably a bit blocky and brooding at this point, it is clearly a Cabernet of considerable substance and depth. What it is not is a wine with a great deal of come-hither charm, and it will take some time before gaining the same. Unlike its companions, it unequivocally demands waiting, and five or six years would be a good start. *One Star* Inner quote mark (12/2016)
