4 Winds 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley


4 Winds 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon,  Napa Valley

The wine is crafted by Ace Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.  The 2013 4 Winds Cabernet has an enticing aroma of layered notes of dark fruit, spice and vanilla. Soft tannins provide a sensual mouthfeel while flavors of black currant and licorice keep company with unexpected hints of eucalyptus and chocolate and well-integrated barrel influences.  Deep garnet in color and intriguingly complex overall, this beauty of a wine would pair effortlessly with braised short ribs, rosemary rubbed rack of lamb, black olives or a strong cheese like Cabot cheddar.  Only 315 cases produced.

Winemaker notes: " A notable freshness lingers upon opening, building to a bouquet that’s bursting with ripe dark berries, cassis and vanilla. Juicy flavors of ripe blackberry and boysenberry echo the nose, while Santa Rosa plum and chocolate emerge mid-palate. The bounty of ripe fruit is balanced by an integrated, ashy tannin making for a long finish. This inky, complex wine would pair stunningly with any espresso, cocoa, or rosemary rubbed beef. Its also the perfect companion to venison or lamb with a fruit-based sauce."
