Newton The Puzzle 2013
|Appellation||Spring Mountain District|
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon the Puzzle, all Cabernet Sauvignon, seems to be the ultimate expression of the Newton terroir. Dense ruby/purple with rich cassis fruit, springs flowers and good earthiness, this is full-bodied, impressive, but again backward and in need of cellaring. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 25 years.
Wine EnthusiastThe winery's top-end 100% varietal wine every year, this has grapes that mostly come from Mount Veeder, with smaller percentages from Yountville and Spring Mountain. New winemaker Rob Mann's work is on display for the first time with this vintage. It's an auspicious beginning, the wine dotted in mocha, red cherry and cranberry with firm tannins and lifted acidity.
Wine SpectatorSways you with balance and finesse, delivering an appealing mix of black and red berry fruit flavors, firm acidity and tannins, and hints of blueberry and wild berry that are awash in a chewy tannic texture. Drink now through 2024. 1,600 cases made.
