Yardstick 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruth's Reach, Napa Valley, Goldschmidt
Nick Goldschmidt loves tracking down unique single vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma and bottling great wine from them. This Yardstick Ruth’s Reach is his latest from Napa Valley. The grapes all come from a small vineyard in the St. Helena District on the eastern side of the valley just off the Silverado Trail. It's a spot where the thin soils allow roots to run deep keeping yields low and concentration high. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nick fermented slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel and then aged the wine 15 months in 50% new French oak. From the extraordinary 2013 vintage, it shows pretty black current, black cherry and dark chocolate along with pencil shaving minerals and woodsy spice. An incredible value for a single vineyard Napa Cab don't miss it while it's ON SALE!!!
