Made from our finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, our 2013 Platinum is our purest, most intense
and most seductively smooth red wine. Thoughtful decision making, from vineyard sourcing
through winemaking, is reflected in the poise and polish of this incredibly dark and decadent wine.
The grapes, picked at their peak, deliver deep layers of spiced plum, black cherry, blueberry and
graphite, structured by mature tannins. Hints of cocoa and spice from French oak barrels cradle
the intense fruit and grace the long finish. For all its power, the palate remains velvety and plush,
a signature of this distinguished wine.
Our Platinum wine is made from our very best lots of our very best vineyards in the vintage. With our long history in the Napa Valley, we have several sites from which to choose and we selected grapes based on their ripe, polished tannins and intense fruit expression. In 2013, this included a variety of sites, ranging from Yountville, St. Helena, Wooden Valley, Rutherford and Diamond Mountain. The unique microclimates and soil compositions of these individual sites lend distinct personalities for balance and texture in the overall wine.
