Seavey Caravina Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The new releases include the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina, which is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance equal parts Merlot and Petit Verdot. From younger vines and less-concentrated lots of wine, it is their biggest cuvée of nearly 1,900 cases. The wine is only about 40% new French oak. The 2013 is outstanding, with a deep purple color, a sweet nose of chocolate, dusty, loamy soil notes, a touch of roasted herbs, silky tannins and a medium to full-bodied, very sexy and lush style. Drink over the next 12-15+ years.
