2013 Volker Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

2013 Volker Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon Napa image

Composition: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot



Harvest: The Cabernet blocks were harvested in five separate passes mid October



Oak Aging: 22 months in 50% new French oak barrels from Treuil cooperage (i.e. Aillier and Troncais).



Organic:  All fruit is organically grown in our estate vineyard.



The 2013 Volker Eisele Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of vineyard blocks from throughout the entire estate. Varying terrain, different clones, and different rootstocks produce a patchwork of flavor identities between the vineyard blocks, creating a blend that is essentially a snapshot in time of a dynamic, ever-changing vineyard. During the fall of 2013, each individual vineyard block was monitored for ripeness, and picked when the grapes had reached their full expression of ripeness.



In the glass, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep burgundy, with subtle purple undertones. Extroverted aromas of fresh raspberries, milk chocolate, and malted vanilla explode from the glass. In the mouth, the wine is round and lush, with dense layers of blackberry, black cherry, and the subtle spiciness of charred French oak. The tannins are broad and creamy, and linger well into the lengthy, sweetly smoky finish. ~Molly Lyman, Winemaker



An elegant, juicy 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Chiles Valley has 6% Merlot in the blend. The wine has a dark ruby/purple color, sweet tannin, loads of raspberry, strawberry and black cherry fruit, a touch of underlying soil notes, medium to full body and a supple, velvety mouthfeel. This is classy, elegant and seductive Cabernet Sauvignon made in a feminine style. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
