At Medlock Ames, we love to create fond memories. One way to do that is with a special wine from an older vintage. Library wines can be from a previous vintage or something that we’ve been storing in our cellar to share later. Either way, you’re always in for a treat. Cheers!
The fruit in this Cabernet Sauvignon is framed by angular tannins – big, brawny, and dark. The framing is almost an “architectural” component that holds all the flavors together and provides a solid core, excellent structure. There is an aromatic sweetness to the 2013 offering with warm cedar, pine, and blue fruit. It is approachable with good continuity as the flavors evolve to cassis, forest floor, and Bing cherry.
Concentrated aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, and black currant provide a welcome entry to this powerful Cabernet that shows notes of licorice, plum and a hint of slate and minerality on the palate. Lush, firm tannins round out the finish.
