Uppercut 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Item Number: 13 20 326 13
Provenance winery produces this finely tuned super value Napa Valley Cab. Winemaker Trevor Durling sources grapes from throughout the valley accessing fruit from both Provenance's and Sterling's vineyards. Almost half is grown right in Rutherford. It's about 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Merlot. The wine is aged 15 months in 30% new oak. In 2012 and 2013 Napa Valley has been blessed with back to back outstanding vintages. This is one of the first 2013's we've seen and it's exceptional. Rich, deep flavors good intensity and balanced structure. The black currant, cherry, coocoa flavors fan out on the palate and the fine grained tannins offer a rich mouthfeel, suggesting good longevity for this Cab as it lingers on the finish. But the best thing about it is the price.
