Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine AdvocateMade by Brian Rudin and a beautiful wine anyway you look at it, the 2013 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (there's 9% Merlot and 3% Malbec) is a full-bodied, ripe, layered effort that has terrific notes of loamy earth, truffle, wild herbs and assorted black fruits. Aged 16 months in 40% new oak, from seven different parcels on Red Mountain, it has the fruit and texture to drink nicely today, but will cruise for a decade or more.
Wine EnthusiastThe aromas of blue fruit, herbs and spice are initially under tight restraint. The flavors are full, with the tannins simultaneously firm and fine grained. It shows good length.
Wine SpectatorFirm, focused and dense, with cherry, black currant and licorice flavors, hinting at black pepper as the finish persists against a thick layer of fine tannins. Best after 2017. 7,385 cases made.
