2013 David's Folly
Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot
Our 2013 David's Folly features 66% CabernetSauvignon, blended with 34% Petit Verdot, creating a unique and interesting spin on a traditional Bordeaux-style, Cab-based blend. Showcasing a significant percentage of Petit Verdot, which is often relegated to a minor blending role, this wine offers a very generous nose of dark fruits and allusive earthy and peppery aromas that seem to evolve every minute the bottle is open. On the palette, the wine shows the softer side of Cabernet Sauvignon with delicious fruit, great freshness and integrated tannins. This one is beautiful now, but will gain some heft with age and will be fun to try in the coming years.
