Winemaker Notes
The 2013 Chairman Series Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, and dense in color with a complex flavor profile. The bouquet of berry fruit and smoky notes continue onto the palate with rich flavors of blackberry, boysenberry pie, and black cherry that are complemented by mocha and anise from the oak. The lingering finish is framed beautifully by smooth tannins.

Pair this wine with a variety of barbecued dishes, meaty stews, or braised short ribs.

Production Notes
The 2013 growing season was one of the most amazing we have seen in the last several years. Despite modest rainfall, the timing of the fruit development was ideal. Bud break began in the second week of March and a warm spring led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. A typical sunny Santa Ynez summer allowed for optimal staggered ripening of each varietal and we experienced a harvest lasting nearly 3 months.
