2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Case Only)
I am very proud of the 2013 Pied à Terre Cabernet Sauvignon. It is my favorite vintage to date. The wine has intense flavor and color yet is perfectly balanced. One of my favorite winemakers, Dominique Belluard, talks about the importance of a wine having energy. This wine has energy! -- Richard
Tasting Notes: Aromas of vibrant red fruit -- sour cherry, black cherry -- with a touch of peat and bell pepper. On the palate, the wine has great intensity and freshness, with subtle, mature tannins; a perfect complement to hearty meat dishes.
It is a sophisticated wine from an unsophisticated person.
Grape Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Wood Treatment: The wine is aged entirely in French barrels of varying size and thickness. 20 percent of the barrels are new. The goal of the barrel program is to allow the fruit to express itself fully without having the wood distort the flavor the wine.
