Neyers Ranch Conn Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The 2013 vintage had ideal growing conditions, bringing what many have considered to be "Epic" fruit. Beginning with a warm, dry spring, temperatures remained consistent throughout the growing season, which resulted in small berries, and high levels of concentration. The Cabernet Sauvignon we made from the grapes grown on our property in 2013 is the latest part of the tale. The wine is wonderfully aromatic, combining as it does a touch of cassis with hints of blackberry and crushed violets. There's a strong mineral component, and we can detect an element of pencil lead and cedar. Although it's rich, there is an endearing softness to it; its flavors are more lush than lean. It finishes with a reminder that this is serious Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wine SpectatorNotable for the strong, dry, roasted herb flavors and hints of char, giving this character and nuance that overshadows the dried currant and berry notes. Drink now through 2023. 1,139 cases made.
