Description

While the 2013 growing season began with a lot of rain, the sun came out in early August and stayed out until mid-October. Across the state, higher acidity was reported in the concentrated reds like Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc were balanced which led to the Cabernet Franc leading this blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Merlot. Similar to the later vintage, the fruit is evident but aromas of tobacco and pencil shavings together with toasty oak dominate. Because of the higher acidity, this vintage will be drinking nicely in 2020, but in recent tasting Williams Gap 2013 has been more complex than the 2014 vintage.
