The 2013 Aloft is a superior example of the family's continued commitment to protecting and preserving the land. Arguably the best vintage Napa Valley has seen in decades, the 2013 Aloft holds true to vintage expectations. The aromatics and palate parallel each other with an intensity of ripe blueberry, blackberry, black currant and black cherry. The wine shows further complexity with diverse flavors of dark chocolate, clove, black pepper, leather, tobacco and cigar. Although youthful, the 2013 portrays a tasteful balance between ripe fruit, bright acidity, and tannins. Cellar this wine for a few years and the lush tannins will continue to soften adding an additional dimension to this mountain Cabernet.

The structured profound power and density of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is impressive. Like these others it was aged a full 24 months in 90% new French oak prior to being bottled. This is a big wine at 15.5% natural alcohol, but there is not a sense of overripeness or heat to it. Opaque purple with notes of licorice, incense, graphite, blackberry and blueberry, the wine hits the palate with a thunderous roar of fruit, glycerin and density. The tannins kick in in the back, as this is 2013 and the wine has serious structure and density, but also the fruit extract to hold up to that. Forget it for another 3-4 years and drink it over the following three decades.

Big and rich, yet graceful and elegant, this features a subtle mix of cedar, tobacco, dark berry, mocha and espresso notes. Fine-grained tannins mark the long finish. Drink now through 2022. 450 cases made.
