K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "This full-bodied wine opens with aromas of violets, lavender, fresh rosemary, and espresso. On the palate we find flavors of black cherries, red plums, mountain blueberries, mission figs, and chocolate covered orange peel with sweet clay, freshly turned earth, and pencil shavings giving way to ripe, mouth-coating tannins on the long and powerful finish. An elegant and well-balanced combination of fruit, tannic structure, and acidity, this is our finest Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon to date."

    I love almost everything that Mattiasson touches, the wines always exude elegance, structure, and purity of fruit. That being the case I was excited to find out that the Acumen project was headed up by him and I was not disappointed in the slightest. The 2013 Mountainside is everything a fan of old-school Napa style could hope for from one of the best vintages on record. Floral and herbal mountain fruit with layers of chocolate, cassis, and vanilla are carried by a beautiful layer of acid and tannin. For those looking for a more opulent modern style, this may not be the one, but true lovers of Napa Cabernet will not be disappointed by this wine.
