2013 Gandona Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: The 2013 Gandona is a richly concentrated dark purple and fully opaque wine. Rich and lush black & red fruits such as boysenberry, sweet cherry, cassis, and pomegranate dominate the aromatics and flavors. Strong minerality notes of hot volcanic rock and gravel are on display. Floral elements of hibiscus and violets are interlaced with anise, allspice, vanilla, and cocoa. Full bodied, this wine has a long and complex finish that lingers for over 45 seconds.
Winemaker's Notes: Gandona Estate sits on a sloping hillside high above the beauty of Napa Valley and Lake Hennessey. Its vineyards were carved from the steep terrain and planted in small blocks, each with its own distinct personality. Each block is harvested in individual batches, isolating flavor ariations and then blended to create the foundation for the rich, complex wines of Gandona Estate.
