 An alluringly deep-set ruby in the glass, the 2013 vintage of this remarkable Cabernet invites studied comparison with its acclaimed predecessors. A mélange of black licorice, delicate sage, and dried porcini mushroom coyly greets the nose, as a hint for what comes next. Indeed, boysenberry, black mission fig, anise and cocoa powder play off one another, with an additional suggestion of graphite and black pepper noticeable as the wine graduates to a most satisfying finish. Aged 20 months in 40% new French oak, the wine is lightly muscled with smoothly grained tannins throughout … demonstrating a nimbleness and precision that bring to mind the great welterweight champion, Sugar Ray Leonard, or, perhaps in a different riff, the incomparable Les Paul, picking with abandon across his legendary solid body namesake Gibson electric guitar. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

 Deeply garnet in color, the wine presents a fascinating nose - expressing beguiling notes of black cherry, cedar, and hints of eucalyptus. The wine’s playful aromatics, however, prove to be a clever feint for the “dare-me” dance on the palate that ensues. Rich ripe, intense flavors intermingle teasingly …calling out juicy blackberries and blueberries accented by wet stone, and a touch of savory wild mushrooms. While the wine’s underlying structure, complexity and nectary palate weight provide an unmistakable bass-line to its exuberant flavors and chewy tannins, the wine comes together splendidly for a finish that is long and satisfying. Carefully aged in 31% new French oak for 25 months, the wine will mature handsomely over the next 12-15 years. 71% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon

 Bearing an extraordinary combination of fruit from a trifecta of Napa Valley’s most celebrated vineyard blocks, the 2013 Cor Leonis Cabernet is the epitome of our winemaking philosophy. Beyond its deeply ruby hues, the wine’s alluring nose beckons with notes of blackberry, anise, and hints of softly tanned leather. This enticing invitation notwithstanding, the hallmarks of this brilliant 2013 vintage assert their notability with the dense flavors of ripe blackberry, blueberry, and black plum. Lush in the mouth, the wine teases further with hints of mocha and cocoa nib. Twenty four months of aging in 75% new French oak provides elegant framing for this wine’s concentration and boldness. With its seamless integration of both sweet and finely grained tannins, the wine is opulent on the palate, and delivers an indulgently silky finish of length and elegance.
