Newton Unfiltered Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

I like how this builds on the finish with firm and silky tannins and an attractive austerity. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a savory finish. This shows the character of the wonderful 2013 vintage. Drink or hold...92" JS 1/16 "Classic, somewhat traditional, old-style Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Unfiltered shows notes of blackcurrants, dusty/loamy soil notes, moderately high tannins, good spice and earth. Certainly it’s meant for aging, and there’s no shortage of alcohol (14.5%). The wines have enough to start life slowly and evolve beautifully, much like those of Philip Togni up the street on the top of Spring Mountain. Give this wine 5-10 years and drink it over the following 20-25...91+" Robert Parker, WA 12/15 "There's lots to admire in this elegantly styled effort, from the creamy oak to the moderately rich and graceful texture. Ends with a pure, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2027...90" WS 11/15

Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less
