Vineyard 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Story

"Opening with a sultry mix of crème de cassis, blackberries and crushed stone, this wine is as generous and giving as it is elegant and sophisticated. Hints of camphor and licorice mingle with tobacco leaves and graphite on the palate. The mouthfeel is full and rich showcasing firm, sweet tannins and a bright acidity" Vineyard29.com

Accolades

"Stunning, but a more classic and elegant wine without any of the scorched earth , Graves-like character of the Aida Vineyard is the classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 29 Estate. This is a fabulous property on the lower hillsides of the Mayacamas Mountains. A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new French oak, the 2012 is inky purple, with a gorgeous nose of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blackberry and blueberry fruit, cedar wood and baking spices. Dense, multi-layered, full-bodied and beautifully pure, this is a stunner to drink over the next 20-25 years." eRobertParker.com
