This blends 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc into a seamless expression of black pepper, garrigue, clove and pencil. Old world in style and in full command of its power, it offers generously layered, intensely robust tannin and concentration that flirts with richness. Half barrel-fermented and half stainless-steel, it shows promise for cellaring; enjoy best 2023 through 2038. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
A rich and flavorful red with balance and precision for the vintage. Lots of blueberry character with hints of asphalt and sage leaf. Full body. Silky. Excellent winemaking.
The 2013 Red Blend Proprietary Red Wine is a delicious, entry-level offering from Alpha Omega. Dark, bold and juicy, the 2013 is also a terrific introduction to the vintage. There is no shortage of depth or intensity, but the relatively soft tannins give the wine a bit more early appeal than is typical for the year. Blueberry jam, smoke, crème de cassis, licorice and savory herbs meld into the plush, inviting finish. (AG)
Hides tannic muscle amid a dense, supple core of anise, black licorice, dusty herb and cedar flavors. A style well-suited for hearty fare and a long decant. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2026. (JL)
A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and the rest Merlot is the 2013 Proprietary Red Wine, which is all sourced from Napa. Again, terrific up-front fruit -- blueberries, blackberries and cassis -- an opaque purple color, and hints of cedar wood, forest floor and incense are all present in this multi-layered, rich, concentrated wine, which should also drink well for 12-15 years. 90+ points.
