VINE CLIFF Cabernet Sauvignon 'Private Stock 16 Rows' 2013

This small production Cabernet Sauvignon is made with fruit from the first sixteen rows of vines planted in front of the Sweeney family’s hilltop home, this bottling represents the oldest and most mature fruit from their Oakville Estate. As the wine opens it begins with aromatics of black cherries, crème de cassis, black olive and anise with suggestions of coffee grounds. This leads to deep, profound flavors of mocha, roasted coffee, tar and blackberry preserves. Intense and having a gorgeous mineral streak, this is one which will certainly cellar beautifully for years to come. Although this is already exceedingly delicious, try to resist this fantastic wine for at least another year or two. Only about 200 cases made. (Best 2017-2030) - November, 2016 (OB)
