2013 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Jack Mast was the third generation of his family to own and carefully tend the Mast Ranch; in his whole adult life, Jack spent only one night away from his beloved farmstead. Situated on the western side of the Yountville Appellation, the alluvial bench land of the Mayacamas Mountains imparts traits unique to this acclaimed terroir: gravelly soil interspersed with sand, loam, and clay; hillside irrigation, and cool bay winds that provide perfect temperate balance for Cabernet Sauvignon vines. A staff favorite for its structured earthiness, we raise a toast to Paul Hobbs and Julian Gonzalez for another world class Cabernet of exceptional finesse.
This tannic driven Cab will take you back to the old west with its dusty tumbleweed feel, its full-bodied dark fruit, and notes of charred oak. The long almond liquorice finish will leave you feeling like a true outlaw.
