Big, chewy and structured, what more could you expect from a winery that specialises in Cabernet! Bold, dark Napa fruit flavours come to the fore with a bit hit of spice followed by juicy, ripe tannins.
“Please enjoy the 2013 release of our Liparita Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon, our single vineyard exploration of a beautiful benchlands vineyard in the Yountville Appellation. We have produced what we consider a modern Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in an attempt to capture the frontier spirit intrinsic in the founder of Liparita, William Keynes, when he started the winery in 1880. Further, this appellation specific wine was designed to capture the unique characteristics of the soils in Yountville, one of the newer appellations in the valley.”

“2013 was another stunning year in Napa Valley. Crop loads were well balanced and we were graced with a warm, steady growing season. This easy does it vintage allowed us to take our time and schedule just right picks. Lovely deep purple hue in the glass. Pretty, lifted aromas of strawberry and currants are balanced nicely with ripe characters of cassis jelly candies, honeyed figs and coffee confection. Expansive in the mouth, with richly layered tannins and luscious sweet oak, the finish at once recalls the fresh liveliness of the nose while integrating the rich concentrated body of the wine with excellent persistence. This is Classic Liparita Cabernet, powerful and pretty.”
