Our 2013 Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our family’s two vineyards located in the Rutherford sub-appellation of Napa Valley. This Cabernet Sauvignon is derived from both our Abela Estate (50%) and our Franklin Estate vineyards. Both vineyards are sustainably farmed and certified under the CCSW - Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing.
- Appellation: Napa Valley
- Aging: 2 years in French Oak
- Alcohol: 14.5%
Following in the footsteps of 2012, Napa Valley’s 2013 harvest was one for the books. A warm Spring brought on an early bud break. Consistent sunshine, moderate temperatures (between 80° and 90°F) and the typical cool Napa evenings and morning fog throughout the growing season produced exceptional fruit with intense, bright berry flavors. As a result, our winemaking team is proud to present an Estate Cabernet Sauvignon with delicious dark fruit flavors, firm and round tannins and a silky smooth finish. This wine is cellar ready - enjoy for the next 15 years.
