Bevan Wildfoot Vineyard Vixen Block Cabernet Sauvignon Etched Magnum 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
From a vineyard owned by Screaming Eagle's former proprietress, Jean Phillips, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Vixen Block Wildfoote is all Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 7, aged in equal parts new Taransaud and new Darnajou. An amazing wine, opaque purple in color, with sweet cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, blackberry and cassis as well as some charcoal and incense, this fabulous wine is super-rich and capable of 30 years of further evolution.
Supple, juicy and harmonious, with a wealth of rich flavors built around black and red fruits, offering currant, plum, blackberry, anise, sage and cedary oak details. Complete, featuring tannins that fold in gracefully, ending with a touch of chicory. Drink now through 2028. 275 cases made.
