2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Sold Out

While The Brander Vineyard has long been renowned for our Sauvignon Blancs, we are also very proud of our distinctive, classically Bordeaux-styled Cabernets. This 2013 vintage offers gorgeous, pure fruit and presents an attractive, translucent dark ruby in the glass. A nose of crème de cassis, dried sour cherry, and Madagascar vanilla bean leads into a beautifully delineated palate, replete with minerality and accompanied by notes of new leather, raspberry, cured tobacco, and ripe wild blueberry. Pair with a rare garlic-rubbed filet with fingerling potatoes, a grilled root-vegetable potage with feta and rosemary and drizzled with 20-year Balsamic, or the ineffable joy of a warm companion and the deliciously elegiac light of a late Sunday afternoon.
