Vintage 2013
Winemaker Harry Hansen
Elaborado con nuestras mejores uvas Cabernet Sauvignon, nuestro 2013 Platinum es nuestro vino tinto más puro, más intenso y seductor. La toma de decisiones reflexivas, desde la compra de viñedos a través de la vinificación, se refleja en el aplomo y el pulimento de este vino increíblemente oscuro y decadente. Las uvas, recogidos en su pico, entregan capas profundas de ciruela especiada, cereza negra, arándano y grafito, estructuradas por taninos maduros. Toques de cacao y especias de barricas de roble francés cuna de la fruta intensa y la gracia del acabado largo. Por todo su poder, el paladar sigue siendo aterciopelado y lujoso, una firma de este distinguido vino.

91 Points, James Suckling

"This shows subtlety and finesse with berry, currant and chocolate character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Polished red. Drink now or hold." - James Suckling

 

Vineyards

Our Platinum wine is made from our very best lots of our very best vineyards in the vintage. With our long history in the Napa Valley, we have several sites from which to choose and we selected grapes based on their ripe, polished tannins and intense fruit expression. In 2013, this included a variety of sites, ranging from Yountville, St. Helena, Wooden Valley, Rutherford and Diamond Mountain. The unique microclimates and soil compositions of these individual sites lend distinct personalities for balance and texture in the overall wine.

Winemaking

“No winemaking tricks can replace vineyard power,” Senior Winemaker Harry Hansen explains when describing his process at the winery. “Our selection of the finest, ripest grapes is what makes this wine. My job is to guide that inherent style into the bottle.” This began with hand picking and hand sorting the clusters, followed by careful selection of whole berries. The grapes were fermented in small lots, primarily in stainless steel, to capture the inherent flavors in the fruit and maintain freshness, and color. We aged the wine for 20 months in French oak barrels, 66 percent new, to impart a gentle dusting of spices.
