Stuhlmuller Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 05012


2013 was a classic California growing season. While both flowering and veraison came early and fast, with mostly moderate temperatures, and only a couple of modest heat spikes during the summer, everything ripened very evenly. A combination of plenty of cool foggy mornings and afternoon sunshine, combined with big swings between day and nighttime temperatures produced perfectly ripe fruit with excellent natural acidity. Food Pairing: Meat Loaf with Red Wine Glaze, Forme d'Ambert Cheese, Herb-Crusted Prime Rib, Olive Tapenade, Muffaletta.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley offers attractive red and black currant fruit, licorice, spice box, medium to full body, and good purity and ripeness. It should drink nicely for at least 15 years.
