Winemaking Notes

Rich, lush and structured, the 2013 vintage displays intense aromas flavors of blackberry, black currant, cassis and crushed violet. This wine is velvety with a smooth, lingering finish of toasty baking spices, vanilla and cocoa. Enjoy this wine now with braised short ribs, roasted leg of lamb or roasted root vegetables or lay a few bottles down in your cellar to enjoy in 4 to 6 years.

Vineyard Notes
Our 2013 Reserve Cabernet was created in our small lot artisan cellar. Winemaker Greg Morthole employs techniques such as cluster pre-sorting, berry sorting, and extended maceration. With small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process, our cellar is state of the art and represents the Klein family commitment to producing the finest wines possible.
Production Notes
2013 was the kind of growing season most wish for every year: a dry, frost-free spring, a warm summer with minimal heat spikes, and a warm rain free autumn that allowed for picking the fruit perfectly mature. The warmth of the vintage made sure that harvest would begin earlier than normal, but cool evenings prevailed during the second week of September which kept sugar accumulation at an even pace and left acidity in the grapes. We started picking blocks from our three hillside vineyards in Alexander Valley on September 13, and continued until the last few blocks from our Rockaway vineyard arrived at the winery on September 27.
