Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine AdvocateA beautiful wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and the rest tiny proportions of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Opaque ruby/purple with beautiful blueberry and black raspberry fruit moving toward cassis on the palate, it is plush, medium to full-bodied, well-delineated, juicy and succulent. This is another terrific 2013. This one was aged 22 months in barrel, but 60% was new oak, and it was never fined prior to bottling. It should drink well for 15 or more years. Rick Forman is one of the veteran wine producers in all of Northern California, with experience going back to the beginning of the 1970s, which means he is coming up on nearly 50 years of making wine!
