Cornell Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The Cornell Vineyards 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is classically built, balancing power with impeccable finesse. Deeply saturated and nearly impenetrable in the glass, aromas of black cherries and blackberries are complemented with nuances of black tea, rosehip and camphor. Tangy flavors of pomegranate and citrus zest accentuate the vibrant acidity, while notes of wet slate and scorched earth contribute to a strong sense of minerality. The vines' surroundings come through with forest floor, bay laurel, wild sage, licorice and chapparal. The tannins, while bountiful, are refined and beautifully balanced. The great intensity, purity and proportion of this wine suggest that it will age well for at least several decades.
