Description:
2013 MARSTON FAMILY VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON
The 2013 vintage marks our forty-seventh growing season in the Napa Valley. We strive to produce a classic, distinctive wine that expresses the complexity of our terraced hillside vineyards along the southern edge of the Spring Mountain District. Each year we select and hand cultivate our favorite blocks of the 45 acre estate vineyard to produce a limited amount of Marston Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2013 growing season started like the 2012, with an early bud break. As in the previous year, Ideal conditions during bloom allowed for an almost perfect set. Outside of a heat spike in late June, the temperate conditions continued through verasion in July and August. As with 2012 there were very uniform clusters but the canopies were more balanced in 2013.

The harvest season started off early, with ideal moderate temperature that shrugged off two brief September rains. The wonderful set and more balanced canopy gave a more “normal” yield during harvest. The berry sizes were smaller and clusters were average. With the ability to pick when we wanted, the resulting phenological ripeness produced excellent quality grapes.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: “A perfumed nose of black cherry, pomegranate, rose hips, violets, black tea, fresh tobacco, chocolate, and hints of cloves. A blackberry front leads to a full mouth of raspberry, cranberry, blueberry, balsamic, and hints of fresh tea leaf. The floral finish is long and clean highlighting notes of bing cherry and citrus blossoms.” ~ Marbue Marke
