EFESTĒ Cabernet Sauvignon 'Big Papa' 2013

The 'Big Papa' Cabernet Sauvignon was primarily sourced from 74% Red Mountain (74%) with some Red Willow Vineyard fruit as well. Fermented in 70% neutral French oak for 20 months, this dense and deep colored wine begins with aromatics of creme de cassis, milk chocolate, blueberry compote, black cherry, creosote, and sagebrush. There are intense flavors of creme de cassis, anise, blackberry pie, milk chocolate, blueberry pie and sagebrush with moderate tannins. Massive and broad shouldered, this is simply gorgeous. Try to give this another year to further develop in the bottle. This intense Cabernet wine will have an exceedingly long life and is nearly impossible to resist right now. (Best 2017-2030) - April, 2017 (OB)
