Our 2013 Notorious Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from the most sought after Howell Mountain vineyard estate. At an elevation of over 2,000 feet, this vineyard produces wines with unmatched flavor, intensity and aging properties.
Rich, ripe blackberries, mocha and dark purple fruits penetrate the nose. Luscious and juicy mineral-laced dried berries combine with baking spice and toasty vanilla oak to round out the palate. Vibrant and focused, this wine is amazing now but also promises a long life ahead for cellaring. The wine was aged in French Oak barrels, and then aged in the bottle. In total, the wine has been aged for three years making it luscious and velvety on the palate. Notorious will benefit from 30 minutes of breathing or decanting to allow the aromas to open more fully. Pair this bold wine with heavy dishes like lamb, elk, or a well-marbled steak.
