2013 Perfect Season Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes that go into each bottle of Perfect Season are meticulously grown in our Bidwell Creek Vineyard and cultivated to the exacting standards of our winemaking and viticultural teams. At harvest, grape clusters are picked by hand and placed in small micro-bins to prevent skins from rupturing. In the winery, whole clusters are first sorted, removing any damaged or imperfect ones, and gently crushed and de-stemmed. The resulting individual berries are then hand-sorted again before fermentation. In essence, each berry used to create Perfect Season has been personally selected by our team.
“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
from the Bidwell Creek Vineyard is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon
and 8% Merlot aged 18 months in 75% new French oak.
It’s a beauty, with lots of blackberry and
cassis fruit, licorice, incense and camphor. It is ripe, full-bodied,
opulent and already showing exceptionally well.” 95 Points - Robert Parker
The 2013 vintage of Perfect Season Cabernet Sauvignon was handcrafted by winemaker Philippe Melka from grapes farmed by viticulturist Jim Barbour. In its youth, it benefits from 3 hours of decanting. We hope you enjoy!
