About the Wine:

 

2013 was a fantastic vintage for Napa. The fruit for the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested bewteen 7th-14th October and the maceration lasted 21 days, before 100% barrel fermentation. It was then transferred to 100% new French (Taransaud) oak for 26 months prior to bottling on January 21st, 2016. It was then lovingly cellared at ROY until release in 2016.

 

The very limited production of 300 to 450 cases of Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the end result of the meticulous efforts of ROY Estate's entire vineyard and winemaking team. This single vineyard, Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon is a sophisticated wine of striking complexity, deep concentration and substantial structure. Built to last, this wine is aged up to 28 months in Taransaud new French oak barrels to heighten complexity and deepen aromas. The ROY Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has garnered consistent praise from wine experts and critics for every single of its vintages.

  • “Black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, menthol, licorice, pine and licorice are some of the signatures in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. Bold, ripe and flamboyant, the 2013 is one of the few wines in this vintage that won't require considerable time in bottle to drink well. As always, this is an especially opulent, ripe style.”

    94 points, Antonio Galloni (Vinous, Dec. 2016)

     

    “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is starting to close down after being bottled. There are 400 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, which was aged in 100% new French oak for 27 months. This is a collector’s item that reminds me of a Soda Canyon version of the great Philip Togni’s Cabernet Sauvignon from Spring Mountain. Dense purple to the rim, with plenty of crème de cassis and hints of forest floor, truffle and white flowers, the wine is spicy, rich, multi-dimensional, with beautiful purity and a finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is great stuff, but it needs another 3-4 years of bottle age and should drink well for 20 or more years.”

    93 points, Robert Parker (Oct. 2016)
