Rutherford, Napa Valley, California, USA
The 2013 “1882” Cabernet Sauvignon shows just how compelling this vintage is, even at the entry-level. Black cherries, plums, menthol, lavender and liquorice flow across the palate in a dark, sumptuous wine endowed with real depth and nuance. Fleshy and supple, but with plenty of supporting acidity and vintage 2013 energy, the “1882” is a terrific introduction to the vintage. This is a very serious wine.
