About

97

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has really closed down since I last tasted it. Beams of tannin give the 2013 its shape and overall energy. Precise and yet also quite explosive, the 2013 will be a magnificent wine once it emerges from its present slumber. Quite simply, this is a captivating wine from Naoko Dalla Valle. Time in the glass provides glimpse of what is in store for readers who wait. However, I imagine opening a bottle before age ten will be largely an academic exercise."

94 Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

'The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays loads of black fruit, cedar and wet stones along with some burning embers and charcoal, followed by wonderful ripeness and sweetness in a classic, full-bodied style. There’s a certain minerality, the tannins are prominent but velvety, and the wine multi-dimensional and layered. This wine will benefit from 5-7 years and last for at least 30+ years, based on how older vintages have evolved. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon."
