2013 Tela Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The name TELA is Latin and means Canvas or Painting. The painting featured on the front label was created by Napa Valley artist Annie Bouthillette Mercier. Each of our vintages illustrate a different painting from Annie. This wine is produced from 100% Napa Valley fruit sourced from select vineyards throughout the southern part of the valley and produced by the talented Rolando Herrera.
Winemaker tasting notes:
On the nose you will find classic notes of dark fruits (black cherry and plum), dark chocolate, mocha and leather, with light hints of cedar wood, on a chalky, dusty finish. It displays very soft, well integrated tannins, giving way to a creamy and lingering sweet finish. Its balance will allow this vintage to age gracefully over many years.
