2013 Three Saints Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Three Saints Cabernet Sauvignon

VINTAGE
2015 was an interesting vintage. After plentifully yielding years between 2012-2014, the vines seemed content to produce fewer clusters. Then in May, we experienced one of the coldest weather patterns in over a decade during flowering, reducing the amount of berries that set. Therefore yields were very low. The season progressed fairly normally and was also early, while the harvest brought several heat spells putting pressure on pick dates. The vintage is concentrated, fresh and limited.

WINEMAKER NOTES
2015 vintage experienced very low yields because of cool weather during flowering. While the growing season was otherwise normal, years of drought also impacted total yields. However drought also helped to produce complex layers of flavor at fresher and elegant textures. The Cabernet Sauvignon was more forward and available in barrel and should help make this wine expressive in its youth.

TASTING NOTES
A bit more fruit forward than previous bottlings - due to 2015 vintage - there are still hints of fresh sage and spice amidst the red, ripe fruits. The texture is sweet at the entry but has plenty of texture and freshness at the close of the mouth feel making this a very enjoyable wine in its youth.
