Our 2013 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a enticing, expressive nose of chocolate covered cherries then continues to evolve revealing tantalizing scents of rich cocoa powder, scorched earth and iron-laden red soils heated by the sun after a summer rain. The well-structured backbone of fine-grained tannins lifts a bold acidity that indicates lengthy cellaring potential. The finish of this lush yet powerful wine lingers and lingers long after the last delicious sip. Our 2013 Aida Estate Cabernet will benefit from generous decanting for the next five years and will develop in your cellar for 20 and more years.

On the valley floor, with an almost Châteauneuf du Pape layer of small stones, is the Aida Estate, one of my favorite vineyards just north of St. Helena. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in three-fourths new French oak. The good news is that there are 800 cases of this magnificent wine, with a somewhat Graves-like scorched-earth, charcoal, burning ember-scented nose, with notes of hot earth, blackberry and cassis fruit. Big, full-bodied, exuberant and rich, this thick, unctuously textured, purple wine should drink beautifully for 25-30 or more years.
