LIPARITA YOUNTVILLE V-BLOCK CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Yountville
2013
Wine Details

“Please enjoy the 2013 release of our Liparita Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon, our single vineyard exploration of a beautiful benchlands vineyard in the Yountville Appellation. We have produced what we consider a modern Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in an attempt to capture the frontier spirit intrinsic in the founder of Liparita, William Keynes, when he started the winery in 1880. Further, this appellation specific wine was designed to capture the unique characteristics of the soils in Yountville, one of the newer appellations in the valley.”
- Second Generation Proprietor, Lindsay Hoopes

ACCOLADES

Gold & Award of Excellence, Best Cabernet Sauvignon in Show, TEXSOM (March 2016)
“The fruit comes form a vineyard considered by many to be among the best in Yountville. The resulting fruit showcases a broadly structured style of cabernet with opulent notes of ripe black fruits, graphite, and dark chocolate, all framed by firm tannins.”

92 points, Wine Enthusiast (August 1, 2016)
“A very ripe, sweet boysenberry aroma sets the tone for this very full-bodied, fruit-drenched wine. It fairly oozes blackberry flavors, feels rich and broad on the palate and has a firm but not very tannic texture. It's easy to enjoy this exuberant wine now through 2023.”

91 points, Decanter (February 2017)
“Rich fruit cake characters persist on the nose and palate, with a full weight of fruit and bold ripe tannins. It is forthright with rhubarb and vanilla flavours.”

91 points, Wine Advocate - issue 222 (December 31, 2015)
“Full-bodied and rich, with notes of graphite, blackberry and cassis, this opulent full-bodied wine is best drunk over the next 10-15 years. ”

Tasting Notes
“2013 was another stunning year in Napa Valley. Crop loads were well balanced and we were graced with a warm, steady growing season. This easy does it vintage allowed us to take our time and schedule just right picks. Lovely deep purple hue in the glass. Pretty, lifted aromas of strawberry and currants are balanced nicely with ripe characters of cassis jelly candies, honeyed figs and coffee confection. Expansive in the mouth, with richly layered tannins and luscious sweet oak, the finish at once recalls the fresh liveliness of the nose while integrating the rich concentrated body of the wine with excellent persistence. This is Classic Liparita Cabernet, powerful and pretty.”
- Winemaker, Anne Vawter
