Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, 750ml
"Scheduled for bottling several months after I tasted it, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate may well turn out to be the finest wine the Roy family has yet made and is a tribute to Shirley Roy’s professionalism and dedication to this estate. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the wine has an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of mulberries, pen ink, graphite and blackberries. Some licorice, vanilla and spice also jump from the glass. Full-bodied, built like a skyscraper, with fabulous purity and palate presence, this wine will ultimately spend 27 months in 100% new Taransaud oak, much like the 2012. She predicts about 400 cases will be produced."
