Bridlewood Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 31965


Notes of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon set the stage for our Bridlewood Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. These nuances are complemented by flavors of black currant, blackberry and cassis. We added about nine percent Petite Sirah to enhance the dark fruit characteristics and structure, resulting in a plush mouthfeel. Round tannins lead to a sweet, smooth finish drizzled with caramel. The grapes for this wine fermented at a maximum temperature of 88°F to enhance the jammy characteristics. The Cabernet grapes from Paso Robles provided finesse and smoothness, while the addition of Petite Sirah added structure. To further enhance the structure and mouthfeel of this wine, we aged all lots on 100% French oak for up to eight months.

Wine EnthusiastSqueezed plums and deep pomegranate extract gain some funky complexity from damp mushrooms, sour plum skins and wet wood on the nose of this bottling. The flavors are heavy with juniper, smoked pine and exotic woods, and the dried berry fruit compensates for the herbaciousness.
