A Real Napa Valley Gemstone by Thomas Rivers Brown

The Gemstone Vineyard 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon (93%) and Petit Verdot (7%), sourced from several micro-blocks and distinctive clones from Gemstone’s16-acre vineyard. This big, bold, intense and savory wine reveals notes of lush black currants, juicy black stone fruits, bitter-sweet chocolate and a touch of mocha and spice.  This youngster exhibits gripping tannins with great depth and structure.  The wine is powerful on the mid-palate with lots of structure and character.  It should drink well for 20+ years.  When drinking, I suggest a good (double) decanting about 90 minutes prior to consumption.  Only 600 cases produced!

Robert Parker 96 Points: “A barrel sample of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot) reveals textbook notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, licorice and fruitcake, a stunningly rich, long finish and a beautiful, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. It should drink well for 15+ years.”
