2013 Cabernet, Bellicitti Vineyard
Santa Clara County
22 Barrels produced
A silver medal winner at the prestigious SF Chronicle International Wine Competition, this full-bodied wine is made up of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Bellicitti Ranch in suburban Saratoga. It's deep, saturated color paves the way to elevated aromas of lavender, wild berries and Herbes de Provence, followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel laden with juicy black cherry, cedar and crème de cassis. This vintage is gracefully structured with ripe, mature tannins that have been softened by 30-months of aging in a combination of American and French oak (50% new barrels). Exquisitely balanced with vibrant acidity and a poised yet playful finish, it's the ideal complement for grilled lamb, pepper-crusted tuna steak, roasted vegetables, Camembert cheese or pasta with a red sauce. Enjoy now through 2027.
A classic example of intensity tempered by elegance and finesse!
