2013 Lagniappe Peak Vineyards Pere Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

$76.00

Our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon is named after our suave, dapper and much beloved patriarch. The volcanic soil and rocky terrain on Atlas Peak present challenging growing conditions which result in complex and nuanced Bordeaux varietals. Like its’ namesake, Pere is elegant and will age gracefully.

Pere exhibits deep, dark red color with a garnet hue.  This wine's explosive nose is packed with blackberry and black currant fruit notes, integrated toasty oak notes and some earthy, spicy notes.

Balanced and concentrated on the palate, this full bodied wine has flavors of fresh fruit, cigar box, graphite and dark chocolate. The sturdy tannin structure forms a great anchor that extends the long finish.

Fermented in open top macro bins
Barrel aged in 100% new French oak for 21 months

A tight red with tar and blackberry character. Medium to full body, dusty tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink in 2018.
