Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 91 points

A beautiful elegance can be found in the 2013 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 20 months in one-third new French oak. This is a good value for a Napa Cabernet. The color is a healthy dark ruby purple, the wine offers up beautiful blueberry and black raspberry fruit and is suggestive of a high-class Pomerol. The oak is pushed way to the background and the wine is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a long finish. Drinkable now, it should continue to evolve gracefully and hopefully even improve over the next 10 to 15 years.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is dark, fleshy and expressive. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, mint and cloves are all laced together. Effortless and gracious, the 2013 will drink well pretty much upon release. This is an especially delicate, lifted wine for the year. All the elements are nicely balanced throughout.
