This is a wine with wonderful tannin outline that gives it precision and refinement. Full body, very polished and brilliant. Fine grain texture. Very pretty and classic in every sense of the word. Needs at least three or four years to come together. But already wonderful.
The three vintages of OV/SL are essentially culled-out lots that are co-fermented together from the Stags Leap as well as the Oakville property. It’s an intriguing idea, and Futo has certainly pulled it off brilliantly. The 2013 Futo OV/SL is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Loads of sweet earth and a dusty, tannic mouthfeel that reminds me of a high-quality St.-Estèphe are offered up in this opaque purple-colored wine, which has plenty of blackcurrant, black cherry, licorice and graphite. It is full-bodied, moderately tannic and, like so many 2013s, it has begin to shut down ever so slightly. (RP) 94+
The 2013 OV SL is dark, powerful and brooding in style. Black cherry, mocha, licorice, new leather, spice and blackberry jam infuse this dark, muscular wine. There is no shortage of vintage 2013 personality, which means readers should not be in a rush. The bruising tannins need time to soften. (AG) 93+
