2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Mountain
$85.00

Sonoma Mountain grows great Cabernet. Ivey Glen vineyard was planted on its upper, Sonoma Valley facing slope about 45 years ago. It is my favorite Cabernet from the great 2013 vintage. Three of our favorite blenders filled in the palate. Malbec at the lower back, Cabernet Franc at the top, and Petit Verdot at the lower front. Thirty months in French and American oak barrel improved the balance.
