Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite varietal to make, and is what I’m best known for. I love working with Cab because it is Napa Valley’s most sought-after, highly regarded varietal, and the most challenging to do well consistently. It gives a sense of accomplishment when it turns out to be delicious. Plus, I like that all that work can last for many years in the cellar and continue to be enjoyed. My La Sirena Cab reflects my devotion to balance, elegance, winemaking tradition and classic varietal styling.
The 2013 vintage, like that of 2012, was basically a perfect growing season, and may prove to be even better than the 2012. Slightly smaller crop for 2013 led to a bit more concentrated wines and may be even more ageworthy if well balanced and properly made. Wine critics lauded the vintage, and it has been an anticipated release in the years since then. We are proud to offer you our 2013 La Sirena Cabernet Sauvignon.
2013 La Sirena Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes: (Tasted 10/21/16 by HPB)
Deep deep dark blackberry in color with open aromas of ripe berries and all the black fruits, currants, plums, and blackberries. Very pure and concentrated with lovely french oak nuances and layers. Across the palate this is about as good as it gets. Delicious, expressive, explosive yet refined. Perfect balance and ripeness. It has the right amount of chewy textural tannins in the mid palate with amazing length. This is a blockbuster vintage and a great example of Cab Sauv at its best. Impressive right out of the shoot, but will prove to be quite age worthy as well. I’m proud of this wine and hope you love it too!
