VILAFONTE 'Series C' 2013

The 2013 'Series C' is a compelling blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec which offers lovely aromas of ripe blackberries and dark currants which are woven together with espresso, mocha, exotic spices, tobacco and hints of loam. This full-bodied, beautifully made red continues to impress on the palate, where it displays excellent balance and structure, with a gorgeous polished texture leading into the lingering finish. Today, this is already showing exceedingly well and I expect it to continue to evolve beautifully as it softens with additional bottle age. (Best 2018-2030) - November, 2016 (JD)
