Canvasback 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain, Duckhorn
Canvasback is Duckhorn's first foray into Washington State. In order to create wines that are as complex as they are captivating, Canvasback is following the model established decades ago by Duckhorn Vineyards and will ultimately combine grapes from top growers with fruit from Canvasback's own estate vineyard. The Canvasback team has already established great relationships with the growers who farm some of the appellation's most esteemed vineyards, including Klipsun, La Coye, Shaw and Quintessence. Canvasback is guided by Washington winegrowing legend and Canvasback vineyard manager Dick Boushey, and founding winemaker Brian Rudin. In both the vineyard and winery, Brian embraces the challenge of making a richly compelling wine that shows the complexity and structure of great Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. "Red Mountain is one of the best places on earth to grow Cabernet" says Brian. "The desert environment, with its long days, cold nights and mineral-rich soils produce epic Cabernet Sauvignons" This, second vintage of Canvasback Cab is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Malbec aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Wine & Spirits scored it 94 points in a barrel tasting and Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 as did Wine Review Online who said "Duckhorn's second vintage of Canvasback is a little tighter than the 2012, and can stand further bottle aging. Give it a good decant in the near term to enjoy its mix of blackberry, currants, anise, dried herbs and cinnamon clove spice, with moderate oak toast adding interest. Or stash some in the cellar for a few years, where it will likely soften its grip and let its charms come forward."
