Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 1541


The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon showcases classic Cabernet aromas of blackberry and blueberry with hints of baking spices and tobacco followed by layers of dark berries, graphite and cocoa powder on the palate. Full-bodied and dense with beautifully integrated oak and sweet tannins throughout the lingering finish.

VinousThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, dark and juicy. A great example of the vintage, the 2013 captures the essence of this important Napa Valley vintage. Plums, crème de cassis, cloves menthol and licorice meld together effortlessly. Drink this plump, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon over the next decade or so. The 2013 is flat-out delicious and also a reasonably priced Cabernet Sauvignon, with enough production to be widely available, a winning combination in my book.

Wine EnthusiastRich and concentrated in red cherry, cigar and plum, this demurely approachable and enjoyable wine has the legs to age. Structured and tightly drawn, it holds a tannic overbite that eases in the glass. Cellar through 2017.

Wine SpectatorVery appealing, with a mix of lively dark berry, currant and black cherry flavors, showing touches of charry, toasty, cedary oak and ending with a woody presence and gripping tannins. Approachable now but should age well. Drink now through 2028. 23,000 cases made.
