Grand Reserve

Sonoma County

Cabernet Sauvignon

2013

This Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has distinct flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plus both red and black currants with enticing fragrances of mocha and nutmeg. Subtle notes of chocolate and toasty vanilla add to the richness and length of this bold Cab, and are accompanied by fine grained tannins on a lengthy finish.

"Good winemaking lies at the heart of this wine, which also blends in smidgens of Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, the grapes from a range of estate-grown sites. Balanced fruit and dusty tannins accent a generously expansive palate that is rich but not overly concentrated, shining in berry, cherry and mocha tones."

88-91 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Oct 2015
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve looks outstanding. There are 15,000 cases of this wine, coming from some of the best sites in the Jackson Sonoma portfolio. It is nearly 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all emerging from mountain and benchland vineyards. Dense ruby/purple with notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, licorice and spice box, this wine should prove to be impressive once it’s bottled and released."
