Description
 
2013 Alondra Cabernet is sourced from an organic vineyard on Mee Lane in the Rutherford appellation of Napa Valley. The soil composition here, gravel and alluvial loam, is perfectly suited to the production of Cabernet Sauvignon. 2013 was a generous vintage in Napa, with no real heat spikes or adverse weather conditions. We harvested on October 23, hand sorted in the vineyard, cold soaked in the winery, then fermented in a small, open top tank. The barrel regimen is French wood, 25% new but without any evident new wood characters. Our goal here is to produce varietally pure Cabernet that is versatile and elegant tableside. 200 cases produced.

Ruby/violet. Black cherry, cassis, roasted sweet herbs, and a sprinkling of that classic Rutherford dust. The palate is elegant and perfumed, with the fruit and earth components combining to ensure that real sense of place. As with many 2013s, the finishing tannins are fine-grained and silky, providing for early enjoyment.
