2013 Kenefick Doctor's Cuvée

“A significant wine, the color is a saturated ruby purple and the wine exhibits plenty of new saddle leather, crème de cassis, blackberry, truffle, charcoal and earth followed by a full-bodied, super-concentrated, layered mouthfeel that goes on for a good 45 to 50 seconds. This is a massive Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 25-30 years. Don’t let that scare you away at present, because the wine has velvety tannins and is super-well-endowed and impressive.” 95 Points, Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

Winemaker Notes:

Once again, this wine is selected from our finest barrels and clone selection of this vintage. The SEE clone brings out the fresh berry aspects on the nose and palate while the 337 clone fills in the backbone with a lush tannin profile. Good to drink now and will cellar well for the next 15-25 years.
