2013 Clark Claudon Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

Share on Facebook

Our 2013 Estate Cabernet marks a twenty-year love affair with a beautiful vineyard and its gorgeous juice! Generous in all ways, the 2013 Anniversary Estate Cabernet is more than worthy of the moment. This special wine hits every note to perfection. Lovely now, its trademark balance and structure promises years of age ability. 300 case produced If scores are the measure, twenty vintages of 90 to 95+ Estate Cabernets can’t help but make us proud. Yet, these years of family and wonderfully loyal customers raises that bar. IN THE VINEYARDS & WINERY In 2013 Mother Nature gave us another perfect growing season. We couldn’t imagine that 2012 could be topped, and then it was! Some mistakenly think that such a season simplifies the work of the winemaker. Rather, it creates pressure to get it exactly right! I always refer to winemaking as a dance. With the 2013’s there was no stepping on toes. Rather, our winemaking team, Fred Delivert and Jean Hoefliger, executed the dance like the true artists that they are. WINEMAKER NOTES Showing off its gorgeous fruit, the 2013 Estate presents with deep dark ruby hues and glistening garnet at the rim. Generous aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, fresh oak, beautiful cacao powder and cigar box carry through the velvety entrance & round mouthfeel. Lingering fresh acidity and dense firm tanins confirm the perfect balance of this wine, while layers of rich dark fruit and touches of strawberry assure a long delicious finish. REVIEW “These are two beautiful 2013’s from this small winery… The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up mulberry and floral notes, blacker currants, and touches of licorice, forest floor and underbrush. Displaying impressive purity, medium to full-bodied texture, and ripe, well integrated tannin, it should drink well for 15-20 years.” 92pts. — Robert Parker
