About

94

"The 2013 Proprietary Red Mad Hatter, 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot, is a big-time winner. It has a gorgeously deep ruby/purple color, a sweet kiss of licorice, blackcurrants, black cherries, camphor and incense. The wine is fragrant, with supple tannins, an opulent lushness and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."

Product Description:

"Much will be written about the unique nature of the 2013 vintage. It came during what will now be seen as the beginning of a major drought. Vines had just enough soil moisture reserves in the spring to grow strong, health canopies. However, berry size was quite small, even with a decent crop, which came from the cluster number, rather than weight. Temperatures were relatively mild during the growing season, with very few heat spikes and virtually no rain. This made for highly concentrated wines, with firm tannins and plenty of natural, mouthwatering acidity." -Winery
