Down by Law Wines, Cold Rock Stuff Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Napa Valley, California

image

My Rating 82 Points. 
Price $20.

Light ruby in color with a light red rim.

Fruity on the nose with oak, vanilla, licorice, blueberries, cherries, currants and slate.

Light to medium bodied with faint legs.

Bone dry and tart on the palate with blueberries, cherries, strawberries, cranberries and light oak.

Medium finish with soft tannins.

Drinks more like a California Pinot Noir than a Cabernet Sauvignon. Interesting and good quality. The nose is much different than the palate, which had very little secondary flavors.

Producer is a DJ turned into a Master Sommelier.

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah and 5% Merlot. Aged for 6 months in 25% new oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
