Our bold Baron displays earthy yet vibrant notes of blackberry and red fruit mingling with cinnamon and cloves. An exceptional example of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blended from remarkable vineyards in a phenomenal vintage.
♦ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (94 Points) Barrel Sample
"The stunning, rich, full-bodied 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Barone offers super-concentrated notes of crème de cassis and raspberries, medium to full body, ripe tannin, and well-integrated acidity and wood. This should prove to be a terrific wine to drink over the next 20 years."
♦ James Suckling (93 Points)
"The blackberry, violet, and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, extremely well-integrated tannins and a lovely depth of fruit. Needs a year or two to open. Better in 2018."
♦ Wine Enthusiast Magazine (90 Points)
"Small percentages of Merlot and Petit Verdot soften this robustly ripe red, hugely extracted in black currant and blackberry. Mocha, cigar smoke and leather saddle contribute a more muscular imprint, as a rounded weightiness holds on tenaciously to the finish."
