The 2013 vintage is expected to be one of Napa’s best, with impressive wines displaying excellent structure and having substantial longevity. The 2013 Audtion cabernet is dense and concentrated with cassis, violets, and dark chocolate notes on the nose. The firm tannins are kept juicy with rich black currant, bing cherry, and toasty brown sugar. The finish is long and fresh with rose pedal, pipe tobacco, and a lint of wet forest floor all wrapped in an envelope of creamy French oak. 14.8% Alc., 5.9 g/L TA, 3.69 pH
Wine Enthusiast 91 pts – This is a purely varietal, estate-grown wine from Mount George, cave-aged for nearly two years in all-new French oak.
