"Former NFL Quarterback Drew Bledsoe's estate-focused winery, Doubleback, has one goal -- to produce world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. To make this dream a reality, Drew collaborated with his childhood friend Chris Figgins of Leonetti Cellar, who consulted on all winemaking and vineyard practices from day one. Since his innaugural vintage in 2007, Doubleback has received numerous accolades including a spot on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 List.
The 2013 Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon is everything we strive to achieve with our world-class fruit from the Walla Walla Valley. The aromatics jump out of the glass after being open for a few hours. The mouthfeel is big and round with nicely integrated tannins. The 2013 is soft on the approach, but has excellent complexity. We always make balance our #1 goal and the 2013 achieves this with both precision and power. The wine has a delicious finish that lasts for over a minute. I know this wine will reward with some years in the cellar, but it's going to be hard to stay away from a wine that drinks this well in its youth!"-- Winery
