    Their exercise with a Cabernet Franc-dominated wine, the 2013 Hexameter (a 500-case blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) is pushing perfection. Its beautiful notes of acacia flowers, forest floor, blackberries and blueberries interwoven with touches of barrique, licorice and spice are followed by an even more intense and complex palate with silky, ripe tannins, opulent, full-bodied texture, and beautiful purity. A |wow| wine in so many different aspects, this multi-dimensional classic should age beautifully for 20 or more years.

    Cabernet Franc takes center stage in the 2013 Hexameter. Mocha, dark red cherry, leather, spice and floral notes are beautifully layered in a deeply expressive wine endowed with real pedigree and class. The 2013 is starting to flesh out, but it is still a few years away from offering its best drinking. The blend is 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot.

    A typical 2013 Napa cab with plenty of ripe fruit, blue fruit and walnut undertones. Full body, lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink in 2018.
