Staglin Family Vineyard Booth Bella Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Concentrated and intense, the 2013 Booth Bella Oaks broods in the glass, mysterious and almost impenetrable, laden with cassis and ripe dark fruits broadened by prominent notes of grated baking chocolate, pooled blackstrap molasses and struck granite. A palate oozing with late-summer blackberries, Satsuma plums and fractured blueberries drips onto a granular and powerfully wound structure that promises to pull this wine into the next decades.

Wine AdvocateBoth 2013 Cabernet Sauvignons are in bottle, and both are absolutely magnificent wines, probably the two finest Cabernets made by the Staglins to date. Even better than the Estate, or at least marginally so, is the astonishing 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Booth Bella Oaks. This is another Rutherford vineyard that was made famous by Joe Heitz when he used to produce wine from it, and the Staglins have produced, to my mind, the best wine I have ever tasted from this historic site. A wine of incredible depth, with an opaque purple color and an extraordinary nose of mulberry, crème de cassis, licorice, and loamy soil undertones, the wine has full-bodied impact on the palate, remarkable purity, density and overall balance. The finish goes on for a good 50+ seconds. It is a fabulous effort to drink now or cellar for another three-plus decades.
