Firm and centered on graphite and currant flavors that are shaded by dusty, earthy tannins, ending on the dry side, with roasted herb notes. Drink now. 150 cases made.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Dragon Vineyard (from the same source as the famous Zinfandel emerges) has a nearly opaque purple color and a tightly knit, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel that seems to be holding plenty in reserve. The wine is a classic 2013, still tannic, locked-in, but concentrated and broodingly backward. It is full-bodied, ripe and impressive, but patience will be required. Give it a good 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15 years.
