2013 "Select Barrel Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
CGCW Review: Cabernets sourced from the Stagecoach Vineyard are rarely prim and proper, but, at their best, as this expressive, fully packed effort attests, they are wines of great presence and fruity weight. From its deep and extracted aromas of currants, dark chocolate and toasted brioche to its equally imposing, enormously rich, tannin-laced flavors, the wine is kept on course by very keen fruit. Its entirely forgivable sins of youthful toughness will be made irrelevant with age, and those who would pour it before it has reached its tenth birthday will be missing out on a very good thing.
