2013 815 California Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2013 Joel Gott 815 Cabernet Sauvignon has aromatics of mocha, roasted blue fruits, plums, and cherry spice. The wine enters sweet on the palate, well-structured and with firm tannins mid-palate, followed by a long, balanced finish.

The 2013 vintage was one for the record books, with a long growing season and plentiful sunshine, producing intense flavors and cellar-worthy tannins. Napa fruit comes from highly regarded Howell Mountain as well as South Napa vineyards and is complex with great depth; Lake County fruit is from the Red Hills Appellation, planted on obsidian volcanic soil, which lends minerality and rich texture; Central Coast fruit from Paso Robles and Hames Valley in Monterey County adds good flavor maturity and development. Sourcing from these varied regions across California helped to create an elegant, balanced wine.

After harvest, fruit from each vineyard is hand-sorted at our winery and de-stemmed before being fermented in individual lots. The lots are aged for just over a year in oak, and tasted frequently for tannin flavor development. Finally, the lots are blended to balance the characteristics of each vineyard.
