2013 “Tandem” Cabernet Sauvignon & 2012 Dalton Syrah
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, “Tandem” Napa Valley – $85
Our Tandem Napa Valley Cabernet is from the Mackenzie Mueller Vineyard in South Napa Vineyard and is the first in a series from this vineyard. 2014 and 2015 vintages are in barrel. The micro climate in this area is very warm days and cool nights. It allows for a long growing season and long hang time on the vine. The resultant wine has a very deep color with great richness and good acidity. The name “Tandem” refers to the relationship that Lucas and I have developed over the last 7 years working together.
This is an elegant wine with great structure and balance with good acidity. It has aromas and flavors of exotic spice, vanilla, black pepper, dark chocolate and a floral note of primrose. It finishes with a fresh note of orange zest. The wine has a rich satiny texture. It is juicy and delicious
