Product Description:

"The 2013 The Cave Non Mevushal is mostly a 65/30 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a dollop of Petit Verdot. It was aged for 24 months in new French oak and comes in at 14% alcohol. The Cave always shows fine mid-palate finesse, and this year is no different. Yet it also drenches the wine in oak this year. Its many virtues—finesse, a fresh feel, balance—can be overlooked as a result. This is also probably not the best year for it, but it is still a very charming bottle that is easy to drink, a perfect food wine. It is more or less ready to drink now, although some extra time in the cellar may help it pull in some wood." - Mark Squires
